Thanks to the flexibility and indomitable spirit of our running community, the Virtual Salmon Run was a huge success!
Thank you, dear participants, for your amazing attitudes, crazy creativity, photos and fun. You warmed our hearts and far exceeded any expectations during this challenging time of social distancing and flat-out event cancellations.
Runners from our Central Oregon community and those from far afield, including New York, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico and even further (Australia, can you believe?!) ran either the actual course sans the masses or adapted our map to their own course, mimicking the elevation and prescribed distances, thus creating one communal race.
Salmon Runners, you are proof that nothing can stop you, not a pandemic, a quarantine or any distance…keep pushing forward!
