Beat Beethoven’s 5th 5k

April 26, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

This race benefits the Central Oregon
Symphony which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this season. Hard to
believe the symphony has been around that long!

The object of the race is for 5k runners to finish before Beethoven’s 5th
Symphony ends – about 33 minutes. The music is broadcast over loud
speakers at the track. The people doing the 1 mile walk around the track
enjoy the music as well as take in the lovely view.

Beethoven himself will be running the 5k and there’s a fun costume
contest. 5k runners are timed by Time2Race. There are great prizes for
the top 3 male and female 5k finishers. Winners will each receive a pair
of new running shoes. There’s also a great raffle for all participants,
food, drink and ribbons for every finisher, including the kids.
