About the Awesome 3000

Our signature event is one of the largest timed youth runs in the nation. Every year thousands of fans fill Willamette University’s McCulloch Stadium to cheer on over 3000 runners as they circle the stadium and head to the finish line. Kids are rewarded with t-shirts, medals, new books and high fives. Organized by nearly 600 community volunteers, the Awesome 3000 has been inspiring healthy lifestyles for over 35 years!
