This is a fun, flat, fast course through the Old Town neighborhood of Forest Grove.
This event is a fundraiser for the Forest Grove High School Cross Country program and the Forest Grove Youth Running Club for kids grades 5-8 . The FGHS cross country team has grown from 10 members in 2000 to over 70 members. The High School program sent teams to OSAA state championships every year since 2011. The girls have won 4 of the last 5 Conference Championships while also ranking Top 10 in GPA ranking. The boys have won 5 of the last 6 Conference Championships. The FGRC annually sends youth runners to State and Regional Championships. The club also qualified an athlete for the National Championships. The youth club has grown from 40 athletes in 2015 to 70 in 2016. Please run with us to support these wonderful programs.
