Our running tour is the perfect complement to the campus visit, a unique Eugene experience! Join UO student ambassadors on a 3.7-mile tour of running trails surrounding the UO campus and discover the history behind Eugene’s nickname “TrackTown USA”. Our ambassadors run at a comfortable pace (10-minute mile) and stop frequently to point out the many landmarks. The tour ends with a victory lap around historic Hayward Field.
Running tours are offered at 8:30 a.m. the first and third Friday of each month, excluding campus closures and federal holidays. Running tours are subject to weather-related cancelations; please check the registration calendar for the most up-to-date information.
Tours begin at the Ford Alumni Center information desk. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the running tour to check in. For your convenience, the Ambassador Program will provide storage for your personal items and, at the conclusion of the tour, will meet you at Hayward Field with your items. As a running tour participant, you will be granted access to showers, lockers, and towel service at the Student Recreation Center.
Runners under the age of 18 must provide a waiver signed by a parent/guardian (included on the registration page) or run with a parent/guardian.
