MacDonald Forest 15k and 5k

It was a spectacular October Sunday in Bend, Corvallis and all points in between. Nearly all the FootZoners (seven to be exact) and several other Bendites traveled to MacDonald Forest outside of Corvallis for what's become a ritual on the last Sunday in October. Mac Forest offers up 15 or 5 kilometers (there's a 50k in the spring) of wonderful trails, a really tough climb and some of that lovely west 'o the mountains foliage. There we're many highlights and suberb finishes from the run itself and you can see the strong Central Oregon showing when the results are posted at Twenty or so of us gathered afterwards at American Dream Pizza for more food than we could eat and some post-run reveling. Think about slapping this one on your calendar for next year- you won't be disappointed. Cheers-Teague

ps. this last picture is especially momentus since it's the first time in three years that Shane (Jenny's husband) has been able to enjoy the post run feast instead of lying in the car. Woohoo!

FTZCrew, looks like you had a blast and oh that pizza smells good. I'm sorry to have missed the weekend's festivities. Where would I have found that ahead of time?

That is a great race. I ran it back in its 2nd year when I was at UO (placed 3rd). It was a wet course that day (as it was held in the Spring back then, same time as the 50K) but it was a blast.
