Umpqua Strong 9k & 5k Run/Walk
September 29th, 2018
Registration Open Now
The Umpqua Strong 9k & 5k Run/Walk is an outlet for all those affected by the tragic events of October 1st, 2015 to display DETERMINATION, UNITY, and HOPE through a positive community experience. The event is a tribute to life and an opportunity to honor and encourage the people of the Umpqua Valley.
Rain or shine, on Saturday, September 29th, 2017 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. We also have an exciting program for Virtual Runners around the world to support UMPQUA STRONG and make their presence felt.
This year, we welcome award winning artist and Americon Idol contestant COLTON DIXON as post race concert artist. Colton's uplifting and energetic music is something you don't want to miss!
From the moment the race horn blows till the last song on stage, UMPQUA STRONG is an inspiring, memorable event enjoyed by all ages and supported by local establishments.
