The Run In the Country will not be held in 2016.
After 18 years, the Race Directors have decided to focus their efforts on the other event they produce, the Mckenzie River Trail Run. The Race Directors are grateful for your support of the event over the years. We understand that Eclectic Edge Racing intends to produce an event on or around the same date this summer and use a similar course. Check their site for more information.
Here's what we had at our 2015 event:
Six aid stations (about one every two miles) each featuring experienced, enthusiastic volunteers; water, electrolyte drink and energy gel; and a portable toilet.
Technical Shirts with gender-specific sizing, women will get a woman's shirt!
A comfortable size event with about 150 runners. No long lines and no getting run-over by the crowds, but enough people to keep you company on the course.
Professional, accurate timing by Eclectic Edge Racing, with results posted shortly after you finish.
Most runners will have their names announced as they finish.
A well-marked course with each mile posted.
Comfortable temperatures with a very low chance of any precipitation. Average temperature at the finish is 70 degrees.
An on-time start.
Great destination event-just 7 miles from Eugene OR, Track Town USA.
Race is held in conjunction with Coburg Golden Years, a traditional small town celebration.
Eugene Physical Therapy will be on-site at the race again this year as Medical Aid and our presenting sponsor.
