The Bowerman Track Club Summer 3k Series is a fun, low-key series of races that take place Wednesday nights in August. Best of all, the races are FREE! The races are open to all ages and abilities. We especially invite our youth cross country athletes to come race with us. Fall cross country is just around the corner, and the 3k series is a great way to get a jumpstart on the season. We encourage our participants to bring out their family and friends and enjoy the beautiful northwest summer weather together. We will hold races for the first 4 Wednesdays in August (3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th). There will not be a race on August 31st.
The races are held on the Nike campus in Beaverton, Oregon. Due to scheduling difficulties with Ronaldo Field, the year's races will be run on Hollister Trail. We will meet and hold registration at the Joan Benoit Samuelson patio (same place as Bowerman 5k registration) from 5:15 - 5:45 pm. At 5:45 we will walk over to the Hollister Trail start area along Jenkins Rd. The races will start at 6:00 pm, so if you arrive after 5:45 meet us at the trail.
Hollister Trail is 2400m long, so the races will consist of one full lap, plus an extra 600m. As in years past, each week's race will have a slightly different format that will allow participants to challenge themselves in a variety of ways and enjoy the camaraderie of running as a part of relay teams.
After the race, be sure to walk back with us to the JBS patio for refreshments, prizes and autographs from some of our BTC Pro members. Grab your friends and family and come join us!
