Is Taco Tuesday a “thing’ in your house? It is in ours most weeks, if there’s nothing crazy going on otherwise. Eclectic Edge Racing is taking it to the next level with the 2020 Taco Tuesday Twilight Trot & Salsa Saturday 5k Run/Walk Series in Eugene that will keep you running from the winter through the summer in 2020.
Each of the races in this family-friendly, marshal-supported series are $25 and all include a post-race taco bar (both meat and vegetarian options!) beverages, a trivia round, and a chance to win some random prizes.
The course for each of the races will change monthly, so pay attention when registering and check back to the Eclectic Edge Racing website for more details as the next race approaches. The first course announced, the Salsa Sunday 5k on February 2nd, will begin at the Eclectic Edge Racing Headquarters and travel along the Fern Ridge Trail. There will be one aid station around the halfway point. Check out the course map here. Please note that this race begins at 12:00 PM on a Sunday and all the other races in the series will begin at 6:00PM on a Saturday or a Tuesday. See below in the “details” section for the schedule of dates to come!!
This race would be perfect for a first-time race, a chance to best your fastest 5k time, or to just enjoy some time out with friends and/or family. Your entourage of non-participants can join you for the party afterwards and enjoy the post-race refreshments and trivia for only $10. The taco bar opens at 6:30PM and the trivia will begin around 7:00PM and will follow a different theme each month. Come join the fun!!
