Race Preview: 2020 Camelback Run (Phoenix, OR)

Just outside of Medford lies the town of Phoenix, Oregon. This small town is home to a race with a big hill, lovingly known as Camelback Hill. The Camelback Run is a must-run for hill lovers, which you will encounter around the middle of the 15K course. This course promises the beauty of the wide open country, farms, and orchards all on the scenic back roads of Phoenix. There is also an out and back 5K, which does not include the infamous hill, and an Elementary 1 mile on the track.

This Southern Oregon Runners Camelback Run is a fundraiser for the Phoenix High School Track and Field Team and is a bargain at just $20 – for early registration. All races will start on the high school track . . . quite appropriate for a track and field fundraising event!

Don’t wait until St. Patrick’s Day to start your race season! Get a jump on things with this March 7 race and help a small town track and field team do great things.
