Umpqua Strong 9K & 5K Run/Walk
Together We Move Forward
Umpqua Strong 9k & 5k Run/Walk
October 1st, 2016
Registration Open Now
On October 1st, 2015, the communities of the Umpqua Valley were struck by senseless violence. We believe that every life deserves to be remembered and our community is motivated to unite as an expression of hope and strength.
The Umpqua Strong 9k & 5k Run/Walk is an outlet for all those affected by the tragic events of October 1st, 2015 to express hope and determination through a positive community experience. The event is a tribute to life, with live music, food vendors and an opportunity to honor, encourage and unite in hope. Proceeds from the event will fund UCC Student Scholarships in honor of each victim and in recognition of those that survived.
Rain or shine, on Saturday, October 1st, 2016 runners and volunteers will come from all around our region to run a scenic 9k race, participate in a 5k walk, and enjoy a kids race followed by awards and a community concert. We also have an exciting program for Virtual Runners around the world to support UMPQUA STRONG and make their presence felt. It will be an inspiring, energetic event joined by generations and supported by local establishments.
