Sometimes races have such an epically perfect name that you just have to learn more. This post is my favor to our Run Oregon readers as I give you the details on just such a race: Vulture Venture 5K.
Come on, you know you want to read more…
This annual 5K race includes trails and dirt roads near the High Desert Museum in Bend, Oregon. The event is a fundraiser for the museum, and all participants receive free entry after the race so you can check out all the good work going on. Racers are also encouraged to get into the spirit of the event through wildlife or pioneer costumes (as your favor to me, please comment later on with any pictures of bird costumes. Thank you!!!). The post-race fun also includes music, food, and beverages, including Blooky Mary’s (which you’re going to have to learn more about in person).
Come for a run in Central Oregon. And then stay to learn more about the history and wildlife that make our state so amazing.
