Courses: Due to traffic flow constraints in the park, there have been new routes since 2012. The starting line for the 2 mile and 4 mile events is on Day Island Road, immediately after the turn heading towards the Cuthbert Amphitheater, and the finish line is located adjacent to the shelters next to the river.  For the first 1/2 mile leading up to the Community Gardens, participants must stay on the left side of Day Island Road at all times - traffic will be flowing on the right side of the road.   Click here for a 4M COURSE MAP.  Click here for a 2M COURSE MAP.  The courses have been newly measured on January 31, 2014, with the USATF calibrated measuring device. 

2 Mile Course Note:  The 2 mile course has a short out-and-back section on Day Island Road. Please stay to the left of cones and turn at the location as directing by a marshal.  The turn-around point is located 32 meters east of the bench on Day Island Road.

Directions: In Eugene, turn off of MLK Blvd onto Country Club Drive, and then immediately left into the park. Please carpool if possible, as parking space is limited.

Awards: Awards will be presented to the top three male and female finishers in the 4 and 2 mile runs on the day of the race. Prizes will also be awarded to the first place male and female winner of each age group on the day of race; there are no duplicate awards. All participants will be eligible for random prize drawings on race day.
