Welcome to the Britt Woods Firehouse Run

Welcome to the 19th Britt Woods Firehouse Run! We have four challenging hills for you 10K Invitational runners. Yes, run past old gold mining “glory holes”, the oldest giant sequoia in the state of Oregon, and lots of history on this shaded, all dirt course away from cars and concrete. When you finish the Britt, you will have accomplished something! You will have a staggered start based on age and sex, with advantage to the young and the old. The first athletes charge off at 8 am, and the scratch runners at 8:22 am. We also give prize money to the top five finishers, plus great giveaways from our wonderful Jacksonville merchants. Awards and prize money are provided by Dermatology and Laser Associates of Medford, LLP.

Exhibition Runners will start at 7 am, and run approximately 2 or 4 miles. You will get the flavor of the event, and we hope to see you back next year for the 10K main event.

My favorite event is the 100 yard fun run for kids at 7:30. Each child will receive a medallion.

Training runs are held every Monday night at 6 pm at the upper Britt parking lot led by Doug Naversen and Charles Hodge. (These are year round, rain or shine.) Come out, learn the course and make a friend.

I would also like to invite you to our Britt Woods trail party Thursday, June 17th at 6 pm, same location. Bring some gloves, some nippers or a small shovel or implement to take out rocks and roots. We will mark the course and make it safe for the runners. Highlight of the year, and refreshments are provided!
