Over 500 people had so much fun at last year’s Lake Oswego 5K Adventure Run that the city is offering it again on Friday, July 29 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Luscher Farm.
Lake Oswego’s Assistant Fire Chief, David Morris, wouldn’t miss it. Having participated last year he reports, “Now that I know what a great time it is, I’m all in.” Chances are his 15 year old son, will join him. Apparently last year once wasn’t enough. He ran it three times in a row, joining up with friends just starting out each time he crossed the finish line.
This year’s “Howl at the Moon” event features a 3.1 mile rolling hill course that works participants through 16 obstacles that include a hay pyramid, tire crawl and plank walk. The slip n’ slide and mud pits were popular stops last year and the hills of torture give all finishers bragging rights.
Organizer Jamie Inglis points out that participants can repeat popular challenges and skip more difficult ones, if they wish. The point is to have fun. Currently registered participants range in age from 10 to 66 with everything in between.
While the 5K course is open to those 10 and older, the Fire Department is helping to organize a Fire Fit course for ages 3-10 located near the Children’s Garden.
The after party is open to everyone with live music from Country Rocker, Briana Renea, a mechanical bull, food from Koi Fusion and PDX sliders and more.
Register online. $40/person in a team of 4; $50/person July 28-29 or $45/individual; $55/individual July 28-29.
