Fall Celebration Run

Fall Celebration RunThere’s no better way to celebrate the coming of fall than at the Fall Celebration Run. The Oregon Track Club Masters are hosting the 2011 edition of the event, which will be held Sunday, September 25th at 9:00 a.m. near Pre’s Trail in Eugene, Oregon. The event, featuring an 8k run, 5k run and 5k walk, will start near the parking area of Alton Baker Park. Racers will run through trails on both sides of the Willamette River and will enjoy beautiful views of wildlife and the park, along with a great workout. Entry fees are $15 for Masters members and $20 for non-members. Runners can register online at http://www.runnerspace.com/CelebrationRun, in person at the Eugene Running Company or by mailing in an entry form. Participants can also register the day of the race, but it will cost them an extra $5.

Changes to this year’s event can be seen in its awards. This year’s Fall Celebration Run will hand out awards based on age-graded results, giving everyone a chance to take home a ribbon or trophy. There will also be a non-competitive run, which will take place at 9:45 a.m. for children 12 and under. All kids in the fun run will receive a ribbon just for participating, so bring the entire family and have a wonderful day of fun in the great outdoors!
