Race Preview: 2018 Pioneer Dam Run 10K and 5K (Brownsville)

The 2018 Pioneer Dam Run, hosted by Eclectic Edge Racing, will be on Sunday, June 17 in Brownsville (about 30 miles NE of Eugene). It’s a great way to start Father’s Day, with your choice of a 10K or 5K – both fast and flat! Both races start at 8 AM at the Linn County Historical Museum and are quick out and backs along Kirk Ave and Northern Drive and up the scenic Calapooia River Valley. Click here for a course map.

Awards will be presented to the top three overall male and female winners in both 10K & 5K races and the top two finishers in each age bracket. The top male and female 10K runners will receive a $50 gift certificate to Eugene Running Company, and the top male and female 5K runners will receive a $25 gift certificate.

There will be prizes for “Best Dressed as a Pioneer”, as well as a post-race raffle. Also stick around for breakfast in the park after the event!

You can register in-person at the Brownsville HealthMart Pharmacy, by mail with a printable entry form, or online.
