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.  Flap Jack ran his first Eugene Marathon 5K in 2008.  Since then only 87 people have beat him!  He'll be back in excellent running shape (round and fluffy) to celebrate our 10th anniversary!  Start you're training to beat the Krusteaz Flap Jack in 2016!

Or...Don't Beat Flap Jack

If you're still reading you know that our fluffy friend is fast!!  Therefore, Krusteaz is implementing a new challenge this year:  

DON'T BEAT FLAP JACK! 

Krusteaz will donate $1 to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), for every participant who does not beat Flap Jack.  So, train, or not!  Everyone wins this year at the 2016 Run TrackTown 5K!!
