Race Preview: 2017 Battle for the Bridge (West Linn)

Join the Oregon City and West Linn alumni in fighting Cystic Fibrosis by participating in Battle for the Bridge on June 24. This non-profit race is held at Mary S. Young Park in West Linn. This scenic run enjoys views of the Willamette River and follows trails within the park. Your participation in this race will help raise money in the battle to cure Cystic Fibrosis.

The route is a loop that 5K participants will run twice, while 10K runners will run 4 times. The park loop will keep you off the busy streets and allow you to enjoy nature. There is one water stop on the loop, so you will pass by it 2-4 times – depending on which distance you run. Both distances are timed and open to runners and walkers.

Money raised at this event goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.
