A flat, fast, USATF certified course starting at 6th and Deal Street the course proceeds north to Dane Lane, east to Love Lake Road around beautiful farm country, and back to Lyle Day Park. There is a water aid station passed on the course 3 times (roughly miles 1.5, 3, & 4.5). Race starts at 8:00am.
The 5k is a great race for runners of all abilities. It follows the 10k route out to just past the aid station and then returns to Lyle Day Park. 5k Start time is 8:15am. Be aware that 10k runners and 5k runners will finish together.
Add a layer of competition and fun by forming a team AT NO EXTRA COST! Top 5 finishers per team will have times combined for a team score. There is a business and open division in both the 5k and 10k. Top three teams in each division will receive prizes for their top five runners.
The Scandia Run Junior is a quarter mile non timed fun run that will begin at the 10k start/finish line head down and back on Deal Street and end at the 10k start/finish line. Each Jr. runner will receive a Scandia Run cotton shirt and DariMart drinks at the end of the race. This event will start at 7:45am.
New in 2019 and in cooperation with Hentze Farms of Junction City, Walkers can take their choice of a 4 mile walk on the Scandia Run 10K course, or stop halfway at Hentze Farms and take a shuttle bus to the start/finish line.
Thank you to Dari Mart for sponsoring some awesome prizes: Scandia Run gives out prizes to the top 3 runners in each division (broken up by gender and age brackets). There is also a random drawing for prizes for all participants. Our grand prize is a Scandia Run Quilt (must be present to win). There are also prizes for the top 3 teams in the open and business divisions for both races.
