Small Race Preview: 2019 Silverton Health Fun Run 5K + Kids Run

The annual Silverton Health Fun Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, May 11th and what better way to kick off Mother’s Day weekend than with a quick 5K for a good cause!? This run began in 1983 by a local physician, Michael Grady, MD, and was embraced by the Silverton community for the past 35 years, registering nearly 600 racers each year.

The event starts and ends at Legacy Silverton Medical Center and the day will kick off with the 1 mile kid’s race at 8:00AM. The 5k run/walk will begin at 8:45AM.

What a great way to spend the morning and an even greater excuse to get to the cute town of Silverton!
