Eugene Running & Hiking Trails

TrackTown USA

The Huffington Post describes Eugene as "the city where everyone runs." Track is such a cultural phenomena here that former University of Oregon distance runner Alexi Pappas decided to encapsulate Eugene's spirit in an indie film titled "Tracktown." As the "Running Capital of the World," Eugene is a hub for runners, hikers and general outdoor enthusiasts.

Go Eugene

In Eugene, a lot of things are combined with "running." Want to meet for a craft beer? Join a weekly running group that finishes at a local brew pub. Or ends at a winery. Seeking a University of Oregon campus tour? Better lace up your shoes for a fast pace overview and some interesting academic insights on the monthly "run with a researcher."

Community events tend to kick off with a 5K, from community health fairs to fundraisers. Ring in the New Year with a run, "Run to Stay Warm" in the winter and don't miss the "5K on the Runway" at the Eugene Airport. Yes, Eugene's got its share of color runs, mud runs, stroller runs, kids' fun runs and obstacle courses.
