Sagunto Street and Faraday, Santa Ynez, CA,

Santa Barbara and the adjoining Santa Ynez Valley offer the ideal destination running experience. Held in early May, it’s the perfect time to visit this haven for outdoor recreation. The area has plenty to offer including beach and ocean activities, hiking, biking and running trails, historic towns and missions, plenty of shopping and restaurant options, and an abundance of wineries and tasting rooms. And you’ll LOVE this scenic course that runs from downtown Santa Ynez through Los Olivos into the Danish-settled town of Solvang. Bring your family and friends to enjoy a weekend full of activities in this bucolic setting and celebrate in style at the expanded post-race Wine & Music Festival in Solvang Park. Run the half marathon or the two-person relay. Form a team of six or more. Run with, or for, your mother. But be warned…this race is habit forming and sells out early!

Now in its 41st year, the LOWC’s Lake Run is known for its hilly terrain and breath-taking views!

The 2017 Lake Run will again feature a 10K run, 5K run/walk, Kid’s dash and the ever-popular Family Fun Festival.

Start the morning with the Family Fun Festival, complete with a giant slide, face-painting and crafts for the kids. Stroll through exhibitor booths and visit nearby restaurants for a quick beverage or snack.

This year’s 10K will take runners back to the lake route that everyone loves to hate.  Runners will climb McVey Avenue and proceed along South Shore Boulevard around Oswego Lake to Iron Mountain Boulevard where the finish will be down hill onto Evergreen Street at Millennium Plaza Park.

The 5K will meander around Lakewood Bay and onto North Shore Road giving runners and walkers alike a grand view of the main lake.  Participants will continue on Iron Mountain Boulevard and head towards the finish on Evergreen Street.

The Kids’ dash will begin at the finish area on Evergreen Street and 2nd Street with a quick two block dash that turns around and finishes under the finish line arch.

Proceeds from the 41st annual Lake Run will benefit Clackamas Women’s Services, Child Advocates and more!  The Lake Oswego Women’s Club also provides scholarships to deserving high school seniors who have performed exemplary community service.

In 2010, Leslie Peterson, a local Mom with 2 kids at Banks Elementary came up with an idea of a 5K/10K race for raising much needed money for technology at Banks Elementary School. The inaugural race in June 2011 was very successful and is now a highly anticipated community event.

The past six events have raised a total of $31,000 for the Banks Elementary technology fund.  Students and teachers have greatly appreciated the purchase of over head projectors(2011), tablets(2012), software updates(2013) and typing software(2014), a special typing software for kindergartners for state testing and additional tablets/cart(2015).  Additional IPads for class rooms(2016).   The purchases have truly enhanced student learning.  With your support we look forward to the 2017 results!
