Race Preview: 2018 Lake of the Woods 5k/15k (Klamath Falls)

Do you enjoy family weekends at the lake? The Lake of the Woods Run is a 5k Run/Walk and a 15k Run with a free Kids Run, and you can make a weekend of it with swimming, hiking, fishing, camping, and boating to enjoy just minutes away from the race.

This event will occur on June 9th with the (Free!) 1 mile Kids Fun Run kicking off at 9:00AM before the 5k and 15k take off at 9:30AM. Lake of the Woods is a beautiful mountain lake on Highway 140 between Medford and Klamath Falls. The 5k is an out and back course that follows paved roads and the 15k is also paved but travels around the lake. There are aid stations at three spots along the course with water available.

The funds from this race will help contribute to the Linkville Lopers, which is a non-profit organization with a board of locals from the Klamath Falls community that have helped organize local running and walking events and maintained trails and parks since the 1970’s. Your entry fee will help provide scholarships to local students as well fund the maintenance and building of trails and parks, as well as help with organizing local running events.

Packet pickup will be the day before the race at Asana Yoga & Sole in Klamath Falls between 3:00PM and 6:00PM as well as the day of the race at the start/finish line. Prices will increase $10 on race day and registration closes 15 minutes before the race. Tech t-shirts will be available but should be ordered before the May 30th deadline to ensure there’s enough time to get the shirts made. There are also Ultrasignup shirts and visors available that are NOT associated with the event and do not have custom event logos on them.
