June 10th will mark the 20th year of the Britt Woods Firehouse Run brought to you by the Southern Oregon Runners. This unique race in Jacksonville includes a 10K (the main event), a 4.3 mile (long loop), a 1.9 mile (short loop), and a 100 yard fun run – for kids and adults. This trail run includes both scenery and history that can’t be missed. The 10K includes 4 challenging hills, the oldest giant sequoia in Oregon, and old mining “glory holes.” I don’t know about you, but I’m intrigued!
Besides the scenery, another unique feature of this race is that the 10K has a staggered start based on age and sex. (All other distances will start as a group.) There are awards, trophies, ribbons, and even a little prize money to possibly be earned. There will also be giveaways from local merchants, and, of course, there will be post-race snacks and water.
Proceeds from this Firehouse Run will, of course, benefit the Jacksonville Engine Co. #1. A good cause, a little Oregon history and scenery, and some good ol’ hill climbing – sounds like a bucket list race to me! Time to get registered!
