Join us on Saturday, Feb 18, for the 2023 Gear Grants Pancake Run, a group run and pancake breakfast fundraiser for Run Hub Gear Grants!

The run will start at 9 AM at Run Hub Northwest, 515 High Street in Eugene. Choose to walk or run 3 or 5 miles on Pre’s Trail. Afterward, enjoy pancakes back at the shop! This is a drop-in style event, so if you can’t make it to the run, feel free to still join for pancakes up until 11 AM.

Asics will also be at the shop to demo the brand new Gel-Nimbus 25! In addition, every ticket holder who attends the event will be given a raffle ticket for a chance to win their own pair of the Nimbus!

Your ticket includes a meal of pancakes, sausages (veggie option), fruit, and a mimosa (alcohol free option). All ticket proceeds will go to Run Hub Gear Grants.

Run Hub Gear Grants provide free running shoes and other gear to school-aged runners in need. Our Spring 2023 Gear Grants application is open, and grants will be issued to track and field athletes in March.

A cross country runner at South Eugene High School who received a Gear Grant in fall 2022 said this:

“Receiving a Run Hub Gear Grant was being allowed to have the opportunity to succeed in running … I still use the training shoes today, they might be a bit dirty but they still are some of the best shoes I’ve ever had and some of the most comfortable. The spikes allowed me to compete at a level that challenged me and my abilities, and since I’ve never done distance, cross country was an immense challenge. From the start of the season, I was running 26 minute 5Ks, and by the end, I was running 21 minutes. Not much, but it was extremely important to me as I’ve always struggled with distance and it was my first year. I likely wouldn’t have had such an improvement without the help from Run Hub.”
