Monthly Destination Trail Run

Saturday, Jan. 25 at 8 AM

Join Salomon, Run Hub NW, Northwest Dirt Churners and Daybreak Racing for a fun day touring the middle section of the Siuslaw Dunes 50K course! Meet at Run Hub to carpool to the Oregon Dunes Day Use Area. You’ll have the opportunity to demo Salomon trail shoes during your run. Route options will include a lollipop 12-miler and out-and-back options of 6-9 miles. Expect creek crossings (you WILL have wet feet), forested dirt singletrack trails, sandy trails, and of course some open sand dune sections! We will pause periodically at landmarks and trail junctions to allow the group to reconvene!  After the run we’ll meet at Mo’s in Florence for Lunch.

Sponsored Race: Bristow Trail Runs

Saturday, Feb. 1

The first event of 2020 in Level 32 Racing’s Run Big Trail Series, the Bristow Trail Runs include 50K, 25K, 10-mile and 5-mile distances. Enjoy the single-track trails at Elijah Bristow State Park, which is just southeast of Eugene off of Highway 58. The course is on flat trails adjacent to the Willamette River and consists of a 5.2 mile loop. Most sections of the course are wooded, muddy and wet. Sign up at Run Hub through Friday, Jan. 31!

Motivation Monday

Each week we post photos of local runners who have recently completed races. If you’d like to be featured, submit a high quality photo of yourself and tell us what race you did, when and where it was and how it went for you (did you PR, did you hit a wall but persevere anyway, did you just have a ton of fun?!) Then look for your photo on our Facebook and Instagram pages!

Weekly Group Runs

Meet us at the shop for weekly community runs on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.  The runs are free and open to all paces.  Wednesdays include 3 and 5.25 mile options led by Run Hub staff.  Saturdays are open runs with distances up to the individual participants.

During the summer we host 5:30 a.m. runs on Wednesdays – these runs are over for 2019 but join us again for morning runs in 2020!
