The Umpqua Strong 9k & 5k Run/Walk is an outlet for all those affected by the tragic events of October 1st, 2015 to display DETERMINATION, UNITY, and HOPE through a positive community experience. The event is a tribute to life and an opportunity to honor and encourage the people of the Umpqua Valley.
Rain or shine, on Saturday, September 30th, 2017 runners and volunteers will come from all around our region to run a scenic 9k race, participate in a 5k walk, and enjoy a kids race followed by awards. We also have an exciting program for Virtual Runners around the world to support UMPQUA STRONG and make their presence felt. It will be an inspiring, energetic event joined by generations and supported by local establishments.
What a great way to remember and honor.those we lost!
We are tying unity with community. We are #UmpquaStrong.
Moving forward, UMPQUA STRONG’s mission is to serve as an outlet and opportunity to display DETERMINATION, UNITY and HOPE. We wish to inspire and motivate the people of the Umpqua Valley and beyond to step past adversity and impact the darkness with their light.
