Hey y'all ready for take three? The third annual Sandy River Run! 3rd times the charm but I believe they all have been the charm I mean first and second Sandy River Runs have been successful and fun!
Here is the race page for the Sandy River Run 5k and 10k for all up for the challenge of doing it twice! Here is a 100% Trail 100% local race that occurs the Saturday after you stuff your face with turkey, tofurkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and oh gravy, Costco pumpkin pie!!! (My second fave!). Now you can work all that off then go home for the best left overs of the year! Now for the important "deets"!

This will not be your easiest 5k distance but it will be a great introduction to trail running. This will be a challenging but very fun course. It is being held in late November so it will most likely be a bit wet and muddy so please be very, very careful. We will be eco friendly and this will be a cup-less race so even though it will be a bit wet and cold please consider having some water on your person such as a handheld.
the trail head of the Sandy River Trail. It continues on down the somewhat technical double track trail then you will turn left onto the Jim Slagel Loop Trail which is 100% beautiful single track. The course continues on this trail and comes to a junction to go right back onto the Sandy River Trail or continue left on the Jim Slagel Loop Trail which you will turn left to stay on.
As you continue on the very fun & beautiful forested single track gradually going down towards the Sandy River you will then connect back to the Sandy River trail and turn left down towards the River. You will continue going on down to the River and reach the beach of the River where this will be the turn around point. Make sure you go all the way to the beach for FREE race photos taken by Bucci Photography. You will then head back up the Sandy River Trail and not the Jim Slagel Trail you came down on. continue all the way up to the first Jim Slagel trail head you turned on. Then you will go do a shorter loop on the Jim Slagel Trail. 5k course is approximately 500+ ft elevation total. Everything will be doubled for the 10k.
