JOIN IN ON THE FUN
Join us in Sweet Home, Oregon on Saturday, August 19, 2017 to celebrate the 2017 Solar Eclipse that will occur Monday morning, August 21, 2017.
Sweet Home is set to celebrate this spectacular celestial event with a 3.5 mile run/walk and health fair. Participants of the run/walk will receive a 3" medal to commemorate the event, solar glasses so you can safely watch the eclipse Monday morning and finish up with what else but sun tea and moon pies for refreshments.
The Eclipse Run starts at 10:00 am at the covered Weddle Bridge in Sankey Park behind the Sweet Home High School.
Online registration is closed but you can still register on paper with our Registration Form. You can stop by City Hall Friday afternoon and register or print the paper form and bring it with you Saturday morning to get the $25 rate.
The 2nd Annual Community Health & Safety Fair starts at 9:00 am at the Sweet Home High School by Sankey Park. Before and after your run, you will want to check out tables full of wellness ideas and healthy perks.
We have finalized the route we will be using for our August 19 2017 Solar Eclipse run/walk!
We will be starting and finishing on the historic Weddle Bridge in Sankey Park.
We will start on the east side of the bridge running east along the back of the high school to 18th Avenue and coming back into Sankey Park down 14th Avenue to run through the bridge to finish where we started.
We're expecting some awesome finishing photos with the covered bridge as a great background. So, smile big for the camera when you cross that finish line
Parking Information - there will be lots of parking available at City Hall, both behind the building and in the parking lot between City Hall and the Library, the Evangelical church behind the Library, along 14th Avenue and at the top of 14th Avenue above Sankey Park.
There will be parking inside the park, but we would like to keep this area open for handicapped parking and those with limited mobility who would like to participate. The following is a map of the area.
The Health & Safety fair will be going on at the High School, which you will get an opportunity to check out, so the parking will be limited around the high school.
