As we kick off spring race season, more and more races around the state are popping up on Run Oregon’s radar. We LOVE big races, but small races (especially ones that support local causes) are ones we hold dear because there is an added sense of accomplishment when participating. I hope you’ll consider joining other runners and walkers at one of the races below.
Woof woof! The Run for Rovers 5k is a great fundraiser that raises money for Pro-Bone-O which is a non-profit organization in Eugene, Oregon that provides free veterinary services, food and supplies for pets of people who are homeless. Even homeless dogs need love!
The 5K is a fun run that is dog, stroller and family friendly! The race route goes along the park on the paved bike path. Everyone participating gets a shirt! Come out and support this great cause! 🙂

As a parent with multiple kids in public school – anything to do with education is near and dear to my heart. AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a school-wide transformation program born of the 1980’s that has had a profound impact on schools nationwide since its inception. The mission statement of AVID is to support college and career readiness for all students, regardless of their socioeconomic background. The AVID Strides for Education Eugene 4J 6K Run/Walk will raise funds for the Eugene School District AVID program. This chip-timed race is just $10 for 4J District students and $20 for adults; such a reasonable price that you’ll have plenty left over to donate to a very worthy cause!
