Silverton Health Fun Run

May 2016 Posted in Community

The 33rd annual Silverton Health Fun Run brings the community together once again for a celebration of health, fitness and camaraderie.

The hundreds of participants from throughout the Mid-Willamette Valley can thank founder Michael Grady, MD who envisioned the event in 1983 when he raised the idea of a Fun Run to help the local medical community promote health and fitness.

There will be plenty to do before and after the races from 7:30 – 10 a.m. The one-mile race for kids and 5K run/walk both start and finish in front of Silverton Hospital.  The 5K takes participants through the streets of Silverton, Coolidge McClaine Park and Water Street before looping back to the hospital. Kids can participate in both races by registering for both, but will only be timed for whichever one they choose to wear their race number.
