Annual Nick Symmonds Springfield 800

October 17, 2014

Third Annual Run
October 17, 2014
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 October 17. The 3rd 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.

Race waves:
5:45pm - Walkers
6:00pm - Youth
6:10pm - Masters Women
6:20pm - Masters Men
6:30pm - Open Women
6:40pm - Open Men
6:50pm - Elite Women
7:00pm - Elite Men

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)
