Destination Trail Run
June 22, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - June 24, 2018 @ 1:00 pm
Welcome to Summer in Eugene! That means longer days, more sun, and more trail running! To celebrate the long sunny days we are putting on a three day preview run for the upcoming Oakridge Triple Summit Challenge race on September 7th-9th. For more info about the race scroll down.
We will be meeting at Run Hub NW everyday to carpool to sunny Oakridge, to run a new trail. Each day will have 5 mile, 10 mile, or even 15 plus mile options. You will even have the opportunity to run a flatter trail if you like. After an epic run in the forest, join us at the local watering hole, Brewers Union Local 180 for a pint and a burger (or veggie). This brewery has some amazing beers on cask, as well as some mouth watering food.
Make this an epic weekend to remember, by exploring trails with friends, and capping it off with a cold one and some laughs. All levels welcome. Hope to see you there! Details are below.
