STRAIGHT 8 DETAILS
The World's Only Straight 800m • July 5, 2016

One Day After America's Top 800m runners battle to make Team USA, The 5th Annual City of Springfield 800 Presented by Dole will take place along 5th Street in the historic Washburne District in Downtown Springfield, Oregon.  Join Nick Symmonds, other elite athletes and community members from Springfield and Eugene for this all unique road race and epic community party.


How fast can you go? Unlike a typical 800 meter race– which is two laps around an Olympic track, runners of all levels will be able to test themselves on a straight road course with no turns.  Everyone can participate in the 800 – which is about a half-mile!  Several waves of skill levels will be available and all runners will be chip timed for the most accurate 800 possible.  Again, this race will be sanctioned by the USATF.   Check out our video here:
