2nd Annual Nick Symmonds Springfield 800

September 13, 2013

Nick Symmonds by 1859
Second Annual Run
September 13, 2013
Springfield, Oregon 
Run with five-time 800 meter U.S. Champion, two-time Olympian and Springfield resident Nick Symmonds as the only "straight 800" meter road race returns to Springfield Oregon on September 13. The 2nd Annual "Nick Symmonds Springfield 800" will take over 5th Street in the historic Washburne District in Downtown.  Join Nick, other elite athletes and community members from Springfield and Eugene for this all new road race and community party.

How fast can you go?  Unlike a typical 800 meter race- which is two laps around an Olympic track, runners of all levels will be able to test themselves on a straight road course with no turns.  Everyone can participate in the 800 - which is about a half-mile!  Several waves of skill levels will be available and all runners will be chip timed for the most accurate 800 possible.  For the second year, this race will be sanctioned by the USATF.  Returning champion Alex Jones will return to defend his title!
Race waves will include:
1. Elite runners (men's and woman's wave)
2. Masters - 40 and older (men's and woman's wave)
3. Open wave (men's and woman's wave)
4. Youth
5. Walkers

Entry fees (all runners will be chip timed)

Adults $8.00 no shirt - $18.00 with a cool, tech t-shirt - Men's and women's cuts (S,M,L, XL, XXL)
Kids $5.00 no shirt - $12.00 with the cool tech t-shirt - Youth (S, M, L)
