5K YOUR WAY II
A Virtual 5K with Willamalane
Virtual Race Details
Run, walk, or roll a 5K your way! You choose the time, the scenery, and the surface. From Aug 21–31, run a 5K — you can get up early and run the dirt and mulch paths at Dorris Ranch,* go out on your lunch break and jog or walk the sidewalks in your neighborhood, or get on your treadmill as the sun is setting and crank out 3.1 miles while you watch the game. You don't have to be local to participate — challenge your friends and family wherever they might be. Registration is only $5, and all proceeds will go toward keeping Springfield kids active with new equipment and scholarships for youth sports programs.
*Remember if you run outside — please follow physical distancing guidelines! You can find them at willamalane.org/parks.
