Birds of a Feather
More than 200 runners participated in this fund-raising run for Erik Skaggs, the Rogue Valley Runners' store employee that upon winning and setting a new course record at this year's 100 Kilometer Trail National Championships acquired acute renal failure. The support locally and nationally has been tremendous. Hundreds of folks came together in order to assist Erik with his medical bills. The Bird of the Feather Run, held here in Erik's hometown of Ashland, was the culmination and celebration of one of the best support groups we've ever seen! The list of "thank you's" is endless. We could not have done it without YOU!!!
Full results for the two mile and five mile runs can be found over on the Southern Oregon Runners web site. They've posted photos too. Take a look. Below are some other images captured on race day.
