Maurie Jacobs Park - Eugene, Oregon.
In Eugene, take Chambers north, which becomes River Road. After Chambers becomes River Road, go .1 mile past the Northwest Expressway to the first street, which is Fir Lane. Turn right on Fir Lane and proceed to the park. In Eugene, from the north, take River Road south to Fir Lane and turn left, then proceed to the park.
The 8K run starts at Maurie Jacobs Park, follows the bike paths along the Willamette River, crosses the Owosso Bridge, proceeds south to the Greenway Bridge, has a short (1/4 mile) out and back section, then crosses the bridge and finishes.
