Wilsonville to have a weekend on the run

September 29, 2012 by  

A race is to be held in the area tomorrow, featuring a scenic route with the proceeds going to the Wilsonville Library, which seems appropriate as this is where the race begins and ends. The majority of the race takes place in the park below the library, although some of it is on the road south of Wilsonville.

The road portion of the 8th Annual 5K and 10K Run competes with very little traffic, although the road is not closed for this race, so organizers recommend that racers stick to the sidewalks and bike paths to avoid traffic. Those whose entry forms were received seven days prior to the race day were able to claim an event T-shirt. This race is enjoyed each year by many residents and people from the surrounding communities. There is a 10K walk, as well as the runs on this day.

Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to advertise and promote this fundraising run and walk to residents of the community and surrounding districts. If registering on the day of the event, the fees are $16 for adults and $5 for children under 14 years old. This highly competitive race takes place on tomorrow with the 10K run beginning at 7:50 am, the 5K run beginning at 8:00 am, and the 5K run beginning at 8:05 am, all leaving from Murase Plaza at Memorial Park located at 8300 SW Memorial Drive in Wilsonville, Oregon.
