EUGENE, Ore. — The third annual Eugene Sunday Streets is taking over downtown for the first time.
Organizers say the event is all about promoting a healthy lifestyle and local business, which is why they decided to bring things to the city center this year. The location won’t be the only new addition though; this year will also include running and bike races.
Race director Ian Dobson says he’s particularly excited about it. “It’s just a great opportunity to bring these two communities — the cycling and running communities — together, and more importantly, down here to downtown where things are really happening,” he says.
People can register online until noon on Saturday. There will also be same-day registration from 6 to 7:30 a.m. in Ken Kesey Square.
