University of Oregon offers running tours

Earlier this month, the University of Oregon began offering campus running tours as a supplement to its existing walking tour.

According to a news release from the university, student tour guides lead groups through the trails surrounding the campus and complete the course with a victory lap around Hayward Field, a track and field stadium. The 3.7-mile tour is set at the pace of a 10-minute mile with frequent stops to point out landmarks.

The inaugural tour was co-hosted by Olympian and University of Oregon alumnus Andrew Wheating and student ambassador Ray Grant.

Eugene, where the university is located, often is referred to as “TrackTown USA.”
