Once in a Blue Moon 5K Adventure Run

SUBMITTED PHOTO - Those who participate in the Blue Moon run are in for some fun.

The City of Lake Oswego is presenting an exciting first-time-ever summertime event.

On Friday, July 31, guided by the year’s only blue moon, runners eager for adventure set off while the sun is setting to navigate 3.1 miles of natural terrain while making their way through more than 13 challenging obstacles. Summertime farm hospitality means all things green and full of life — and that means we’re throwing a party, too! The post-race event offers foot-stomping music, food, drinks, vendor booths and more. Luscher Farm is located at 125 Rosemont Road in West Linn. Spectators are welcome to join the barnyard party, watch the course and some obstacles. You might get a dirty hug from participants. Country themed costumes are highly encouraged at the event.

Barnyard Party starts at 5 p.m. Race Begins at 6 p.m. with last wave at 8 p.m.

The Once in a Blue Moon Event is a self-timed event. There will be clocks at the start and finish lines. The course is only open to participants 14 years old and older. For participants younger than 18 on race day, a parent or guardian must be present at packet pick-up to sign a waiver and release. Race packet pick-up is at MOD Pizza, 4811 Meadows Road, No. 115, Lake Oswego from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, July 30. Register for the race at aasportsltd.com/bluemoon5k.

Come celebrate farm style and see what all the adventure is about!

Got Camps?

Paintball Adventure Camp

Join Trackers Earth at Luscher Farm for the ultimate stealth training scenario experience. Most paintball programs stress speedball in the woods (cover and evading). At Trackers we use paintball to train silence, invisibility and listening for just the right moment. That doesn’t mean that it is all “ninja” training, of course. We always engage in the awesome “battle royale” of paintball scenarios. We supply the paintball gear and safety equipment. More importantly, we supply the experienced instructors. Ages 12 to 17, 9 a.m. to noon, or 1-4 p.m. Aug. 3-7. The cost to join is $306.

Table Tennis Camp

This is more than pingpong. Have fun improving hand-eye coordination and reflexes. Check out some techniques and discuss strategy. Play round-robin games. This four-session camp is ideal for beginning and intermediate players. Ages 9 to 15, 6:30-8 p.m. Monday and Wednesday, Aug. 3-12. The cost is $51 to join.
