Race Preview: 2019 Run for Civic Park (Eugene)

When you’re a runner, the person you’re the most competitive with is yourself. Embrace that at the 2019 Run For Civic Park on July 27th. This race is a little different than most, as you’ll be running 1 mile loops with progressively faster cut off times! Runners who don’t finish a lap in the allotted time will be eliminated until only one lone runner remains. Curious about how fast you have to be? Laps will begin on the following time intervals: 15min, 12min, 10min, 8min, 7min, 6min, 5:30, 5:00, 4:45, 4:30.

This event is a fundraiser for Eugene Civic Alliance and will help build Civic Park. It will take place on the 1 mile Rexius Trail loop along Amazon Parkway in Eugene. This race is a great way to test your endurance and strategize on the most efficient way to get it done!!

Kids 10 and under are welcome to join their parents for free for the first lap, but please do register them and fill out the waiver. If they want to run more than one lap, they will need to register with the adults. Check in opens at 9:00AM on race day and the race begins at 10:00AM. The cost of the race is $35 for adults, and a t-shirt will be included. Youth t-shirts will be available for purchase.

If you’re looking for a little extra motivation, you can earn prizes with each completed mile. For every lap you complete, you’ll get a raffle ticket. After the race, there will be several prizes, such as a RunWell evaluation package from Cooperative Performance (valued at $450!) The overall winner will also receive a RunWell prize package.

After the race, head over to Viking Braggot Taphouse to pick up a swag bag and to see if you’re a raffle prize winner. There will be food, drinks, and live music there, so stay awhile and have some fun!
