Race Preview: 2017 Run to Get Lucky (Corvallis)

The Mid-Valley is getting full of events this upcoming March 18th and our latest preview is for the 6th annual Run to Get Lucky 5k and 15k in Corvallis.

For those of you who haven’t had the priveledge of running in Corvallis, you are in for a treat. Both races will start just outside of Cloud & Kelly’s Public House on First Street. Participants will head south under the main highway roads and enter Avery Park. The 5k runners will turn around within the park while the 15k runners head a little further Southeast into Willamette Park, a really cool area with paved trails along the Willamette River. The 5k will have one water station and the 15k will have four, including three with electrolytes.

Almost 300 participants competed last year, so this isn’t some small race. Just looking at the results and records from year’s passed will show some fast competition. Also sure to bring out your holiday costumes, as there will be a costume contest with prizes. Leave strollers and dogs at home for this one.
Following the event, Cloud and Kelly’s  is going to use a giant tent to cover the whole street for an awesome after party!

The race benefits Corvallis Parks and Recreation, which strives to work with the community to eliminate fees as a barrier to participation in classes and activities.
