Fun Runs and Races
Fun runs and walks are a great way for for teams to exercise together! They also provide opportunities for colleagues in your organization to get to know one another, share a goal and form stronger relationships. Walking groups after school can be a great way to train for the big event!
If you prefer running on your own, these resources can help you find a race that’s just your speed; there are options from 5K to marathons. No matter which region of Oregon you live in, you can find a race that interests you!
