Summer is waning and the kids are about to head back to school. Soon we will be talking about those cool, crisp, wet days of fall. But before we get there, we have some fun local races happening that highlight the brilliant weather, climate and scenery of Bend. One of those events is the Recharge Press On 5K. The fine folks of Recharge, who put this race on, have done so as a non-profit even benefitting the Central Oregon Cancer Survivorship Program through Press On. In just two years, over $20,000 has been raised!
The course follows a scenic route along the Deschutes River in the Old Mill and every runner receives a drink token for the after-party. This event drew more than 100 people last year, which might not seem like a lot but for an event that bills itself as a fun run, it gets some good competition.
When: Saturday, September 22nd. Race starts at 4:00 pm
Registration: Online at Eventbrite or in person at Recharge in Bend. 5K = $30.00
