Team Run Eugene Marathon Trials Send-off & Run

February 10, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Team Run Eugene (TRE) athletes Brett Ely, Dan Kremske and Craig Leon are headed to Los Angeles to run in the Olympic Trials for the Marathon on Saturday, February 13! Let’s help send them off in style and show our support for TRE and all they do for our community. As you may know, TRE, led by coach Ian Dobson supports and coaches elite athletes, a community speed group (the Flyers) and youth running programs in the Eugene area.

 

We will have a short Q&A with Brett and Dan prior to the run (in lieu of our usual warm up) where you can pick the brains of our impressive local elites. Then we’ll do our run (3 or 5 mile options as usual) followed by beverages back at Run Hub. We’ll also have a short marathon trials trivia challenge, so study up! 😉
