It’s cold outside but with Spring right around the corner, it’s time to lace up those sneakers and get out there. The 2018 Couples Shuffle 10k Relay and Love Stinks 5k in Phoenix, OR on February 10th is a great chance to do just that. Need an accountability partner? The 10k is a 2 person relay, so get your running partner or spouse out there to help you get to the finish. Prefer to go at it alone? There’s a 5k for that. Last but not lease, there’s a free kid’s run for those 8 and under!
This year, celebrate Southern Oregon’s first race to be hosted and held on a golf course. The kid’s run will kick off the race with a lap around the club house and putting green of Centennial Golf Club at 8:50AM. Then the race begins at the clubhouse at 9:00AM and you’ll get the chance to run alongside the 9th hole and soak in the scenery of the back 9. After some rolling hills and other fun on the route, you’ll head back to the clubhouse for refreshments and celebration.
If you are hungry after your run, you are in luck. For an additional fee, there will be a delicious breakfast buffet of eggs, bacon, sausage, country potatoes, pastries, OJ, and coffee. Adult beverages will also be available for purchase. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in several categories following the race as well, including Parent/Child Overall and Best Single.
No rollerskates, bikes, skateboards, or baby joggers will be allowed on the course. No dogs, headphones, or unregistered participants either please.
If you register before 2/8, the cost is $45 for the 10k relay and $25 for the 5k unless you are a member of the Southern Oregon Runners Club, in which case you’d get a $5 discount. Read more about the benefits of becoming a member here.
