Don’t Let Spring Sneak Up On You!
Keep those wheels turning and the fire burning throughout the spring when you join in our seasonal 5K series. Join the birds and the bees, and the squirrels and work off that winter layer! This low-key, high-yield trio of races gives you the chance to test your training, improve your times, and compete with yourself. Race in March and then focus on your 5K improvement. Train hard, do some speed work, try some hill repeats, or add some miles to your weekly load. Then come back in April and do it again. Your progress might surprise you! Race. Train. Repeat! Whether you are training for a PR or just looking for a great avenue to set some goals for 2021, The Spring 5K Race Series is the ideal platform.
Run anywhere in the world or use one of our suggested race routes!

Why: Socialize (in person and virtually) and get fit during the beautiful Spring months of Oregon. Set a goal for each race and try to improve each time, even if it’s only by one second! When you sign up, you will have an opportunity to come run or walk on our suggested routes OR choose a 5K anywhere in the world. Challenge your neighbors, your college roomate in Redmond, or your brother in Boston.
For so many people, focusing on exercise and fitness has taken a back seat to the bigger health picture BUT we think exercise and fitness is a major part of the BIG picture. And for those who have dusted off their high school PE uniforms, and broke out their old sneakers to give running or walking a second chance, Welcome Back! Rediscovering fitness is a silver lining for sure and we applaud each and every one of you.
Countdown until PRC’s March 5K Race #1
