Race Preview: 2018 Willamette Mission Trail 5K/10K (Salem)

For all our trail race loving friends, or for those looking to get into trail runs, Run Wild Adventures offers some great opportunities to get in some short and fun races. One race that is right around the corner is the Willamette Mission Trail 5K and 10K which takes place on April 28th.

The race runs along a single and double track trail around the Willamette Mission Trail, which is mostly flat and very scenic. The 5K and 10K start at the same time and follow the same course before the 5K turns off and heads for the finish line while the 10K continues.

Matt has run this event numerous times, and both he and Joe  had this to say last year, when the courses had to be altered at the last minute due to weather:

For a race that had to change the course on such short notice they handled it perfectly. I was incredibly impressed with the course management. Everything was very well marked, including “1st loop” and “2nd loop” signs for the 5.5 miler. The flour arrows and cones had to be adjusted a couple times during the race to keep runners on track for the various loops, and RWA volunteers pulled this off flawlessly, keeping confusion to a minimum.

[E]ven despite the limited areas in which to run, Run Wild Adventures came through with ease and put on a great event.

Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each age group in each race distance. Following the race is food, refreshments, raffle prizes!
