Race Preview: 2019 Hack N Dash Laurelwood (Eugene)


If you enjoy golf as much as running, there’s a great event coming your way on August 11th. The 2019 Hack N Dash Laurelwood in Eugene is a fun challenge that lets you run from shot to shot of golf.

This Eclectic Edge event takes place at the Laurelwood Golf Course, and it will be a challenging course with some rolling hills. The first wave begins at 8:00AM and there will be a staggered group of participants every 3 minutes, based on projected time and strokes. The most experienced golfers will be the first to tee off.

The total distance you will run is a 5k for a 9-hole round of golf or a 10k for a 18-hole game, (which is two 9-hole rounds for this event.) You’ll add the number of strokes to the total time to complete all 9 holes to determine your score at the end. You can find a partner and do it as a two-person team or go at it alone. Two-person teams will alternate shots throughout the round.

The cost of this event is $30 for the 5k/9-hole each or $35 for the 10k/18-hole each. Add $5 per player on race day. All participants will receive some refreshments and be eligible for random prize drawings. There will also be awards for the top overall male and female and the top three two-person teams. Shirts are available for purchase for $12 through August 2nd.

Please review the website for the event rules. Above all, abide by the final rule which is to have a lot of fun!
