HOLIDAY HUSTLE 10K & 5K
START & FINISH: The 10K & 5K start at 10:15 am on Saturday, December 20, 2014. The start & finish are at the Lane Events Center. The best way to get there is to drive east on W 13th St (one way street) and turn right where W 13th intersects with Jefferson. If you are coming from I-5, take exit 194B to merge onto I-105W / OR-126W toward Eugene. The freeway ends. Continue straight on Jefferson St about a half mile to destination.
PACKET PICK-UP: You can pick up your packet prior to race day on Friday, December 19, 2014 between 5pm-7pm at Claim 52 Brewing at 1030 Tyinn St, Eugene, OR 97402. Race day packet pick-up is inside Expo Space 2 at Lane County Fair Grounds for all 8:30am-9:45am for all participants. There will be volunteers at the entrance to guide participants to parking and packet pick up.
COURSE: We are featuring new out and back courses this year on the Fern Ridge Path. Click here for a 10K COURSE MAP. Click here for a 5K COURSE MAP.
TEAM COMPETITIONS: Run as a team for prizes and glory. All team members must be registered and declared prior to race day, and compete in the same distance. Note your team name while registering (online or paper entry). Prizes will be awarded to the fastest team, the team with the most spirit, and the team with the most members! At least four members of your team must finish in order to be eligible to win.
AID STATION: There will be one aid station on the 5K course and 2 on the 10K course. They will serve water. Racers are responsible for bringing gu if they take gu. The trail is not your trash can. Don't litter.
STROLLERS: Strollers are allowed. Please start toward the back of the pack and always stay to the right so runners and walkers can pass you.
DOGS: Dogs are not allowed any of the courses or inside facilities.
AWARDS: Top 3 males and females overall and top 3 M & F in each AGE GROUP will be given awards.
SHIRTS: Tech shirts are available for purchase through November 30. Shirts are not included in the entry fees. You may purchase a shirt for $12. They are unisex and very comfortable.
PACING: Anybody pacing someone else MUST register for the event. Do not run/walk the race without registering. This includes people who want to participate but don't care about a finish time. Anyone participating in the event must register.
TIME LIMIT: There is no time limit for the 10K/5K. We just ask that everyone cross the finish line by 2 pm (that's plenty of time) and if you do not finish, please come to the finish line and tell the timer who will be in a red Eclectic Edge Racing vehicle next to the finish line.
AFTER PARTY: Join us at Claim 52 Brewing at The Taproom on 1030 Tyinn Street, Eugene, OR 97402 for post-race celebrations!
The kid's run will start and finish at the finish line next to Expo Space 2 at Lane County Fair Grounds at 9:45am. Kids do not need to register to participate. Since there is no pre-registration for kids, shirts will not be available for purchase in youth sizes.
