No automatic alt text available.
As a runner, I think we know how to dress up…we dress up in running gear most every day! Ha! How about we take it up a notch and dig out that old prom dress or frilly suit!? The Fanciest 5k Ever is a fun, community race were everyone participating will run in formal clothes! It’s sure to be a good time, and all money raised will go to Safety Compass.  This local organization provides free, confidential advocacy for sex-trafficking survivors in the mid-Willamette Valley region of Oregon.

The race starts and ends at West Salem Courthouse (300 Glen Creek Rd NW). Runners and walkers will be in Wallace Marine Park looping through, dressed for success!

About Julie Mullins (104 Articles)
I am a 41 year-old runner from Dallas, OR. I am married to Jerry (also a runner) and we have three kids (one who will run with us on occasion). I work full time at West Valley Hospital/Salem Health and run as often as I can. I ran in High school but as an adult, started running in 2008. Since then, I have completed 13 full marathons, numerous 5k, 10ks and 15k. I've run two Ultras and just completed my 31st half marathon. My goal is the get my BQ in 2018 at Eugene Marathon! (Pinch me, I DID IT!!!) I also organize a local running group called ZaoFit (on facebook). I LOVE running with others - it is what keeps me motivated to stay consistent, and to keep dreaming big.
