Looking for a “classic” road race in Eugene for 2023? Maybe even looking to run a race with your significant other? The Couples Classic, brought to you by River Road Park and Recreation District, might be the perfect 5K for you. The “couples” part of the race title refers to the fact that you can run this as a team; or you can run it individually. For teams, the times will be added together to determine the winner.
Besides the reward of running the race, you will also be eligible for all sorts of fun prizes from local merchants and post-race refreshments like Mo’s chowder, baked goods, and drinks. This race also provides you post-race access to a shower, hot tub, and dressing room at River Road Park and Recreation. Just bring a swimsuit and towel. I can’t think of many other races that offer that. Did I also mention that free childcare (courtesy of the River Road staff) is available? For many parents, that is worth the price of admission alone!
So if you are looking to do a race with your sweetheart right before Valentine’s Day, why not check out this race? You can drop your kids off beforehand, enjoy some food and the hot tub after, and it will be like the perfect date. Just don’t forget to pick up the kids before you head home! 😉
