The Umpqua Strong 9k & 5k Run/Walk is an outlet for all those affected by the tragic events of October 1st, 2015 to express hope and determination through a positive community experience. The event is a tribute to life and an opportunity to honor, encourage and unite in hope.
Rain or shine, on Saturday, September 30th, 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. It will be an inspiring, energetic event joined by generations and supported by local establishments.
