Race Preview: 2019 Hit the Barlow Trail 5K (Gresham)

The Sam Barlow High School Alumni Association (SBHSAA) presents the inaugural Hit the Barlow Trail 5K and Kid’s Run. Proceeds from this event go to support the SBHSAA which will be establishing scholarships for graduates of Sam Barlow High School. The 5K course will be run entirely on the Sam Barlow campus, mostly on the cross country trail. The Kids Dash, a 1/4 mile run, will be run on the track.

While this event will have race bibs and a race clock, “in the spirit of community no times or places will be kept.” And all participants will receive a finisher’s award.

If you haven’t seen the new stadium, track, and football field – this is your chance to check it out up close! There will be booths, vendors, and plenty of fun for the whole family to enjoy after the run.

If you can’t attend the run but would like to help support the scholarships, you can run the Virtual Race at a day and time that will work for your schedule. Whether you run virtually or make it to the high school on race day; this will be a fun, family friendly event to support graduating students of Sam Barlow High School.
