5K & 8K "FUN RUN" TRAIL RACE
This year will be the 7th Annual Blueberry Run, sure doesn't feel like we've crossed Riffe Dam 6 times already. We have a picturesque 5k and 8k option. Your scenery is Riffe Lake, Hydrovista, well kept trails, and ends with crossing the tallest dam in the NW twice! The dam is actually taller than the Space Needle which obviously creates a great view if you find yourself wanting to take a break at the top. Although some run this competitively, most are just out to have a good time, walk and talk with friends, support Mossyrock track/cross country, and receive their free blueberries at the completion of the race. The race begins at 9 a.m. which allows plenty of time to get back to town for the 11 a.m. parade. Registration will be the morning of the race. We have been making constant upgrades and improvements to our track and gear with the money this fundraiser earns. We are considering getting new uniforms and warm-ups in the future, along with keeping our gear new and safe. We are also planning on constructing a storage shed to keep all of our equipment in good shape. So thank you for making these plans possible.
The fee is a very reasonable $20, which includes blueberries when you complete the run. We are not doing shirts this year, but if we find people really like the shirts we will bring them back.
We hope to see you at the Blueberry 5k/8k, whether you're walking, jogging, or running. Want a head start? Click here to download the application and fill it out before you arrive!
