Run TrackTown 5K

Benefitting Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)

We are thrilled to partner with RE/MAX Integrity to raise awareness and funds for Court Appointed Special Advocates of Lane County at this years Run TrackTown 5K.  Because of RE/MAX Integrity's generous partnership, a portion of your registration fee goes directly back to CASA.  Remember, YOU can also raise additional funds through your run. Visit our Crowdrise webpage to find out how easy it is to start fundraising! 

CASA Helps Abused Kids

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) provides a powerful voice for abused and neglected children in Lane County. Every day, judges decide the futures of foster children in a court system that is too overburdened to focus adequately on the needs of each child. CASA trains and supports community volunteers to advocate for these children and help to move them as quickly as possible into safe, permanent homes. Learn more at www.casa-lane.org.

We are thrilled to have both Saturday races (5K & Kids Run) finish once again on the track at Hayward Field; just like the full and half marathon!  You can expect all of the same excitement - including the popular Krusteaz Flap Jack.  And, even better, you can eat a flap jack too at the Krusteaz pancake breakfast after the race!  Thanks Krusteaz!  

Beat the Krusteaz Flap Jack and WIN!

The Krusteaz Flap Jack continues to reach new heights in popularity.  More and more of you speedsters are training to beat him in the 5K and win a years supply of yummy Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix.  In 2012 only 10 people crossed the finish line before our fluffy friend.  How about 2013, you ask?  Only 4 folks were faster!  Flapjack was kind in 2014.  He 'allowed' more winners.  All "winners" receive Krusteaz pancakes and coupons. We hope you're training to beat the Krusteaz Flap Jack in 2015!
