We have been closely monitoring the recommendations of leading health organizations in response to the developing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

As community supporters, we believe our primary role and responsibility is to ensure community members are cared for during this time of uncertainty. We continue to work closely with our partners at Salem-Keizer Public Schools to ensure the safety of our student populations and their families.

May 2nd, the date of the 38th annual Awesome 3000, is fast approaching. There are still many unknowns regarding the virus and the precautionary measures that may still need to be taken in the coming weeks. Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Awesome 3000 until Saturday, August 1. The event will still be held at McCulloch Stadium and will be a great celebration of community. We look forward to having you join us then.

A big thank you to Willamette University and all our sponsors. We could not have rescheduled without their support and flexibility. If you have already registered your student(s) for the event, your registration will be carried forward to the new date. Should you have questions, please contact us at info@skeducationfoundation.org.

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!
