SALEM, Ore.—The first annual ODFW family friendly 5K fun run/walk has a wild twist―three stops along the route incorporate trap shooting, archery and spin casting. It kicks off at 9 a.m. on August 9 at the EE Wilson Wildlife Area in Monmouth. The event is family friendly and benefits the 2014 Governor’s Holiday Toy Drive, which provides toys for children in need.

How it works
9 a.m. Ready, set, go: run/walk to the trap shooting range where you will try your hand at shooting a shotgun. Hit the pavement again and go to the new archery range. Learn to shoot a bow safely and launch three arrows at a target. Head out to the final stop and give spin casting at a target a try. After that, it is a short jog to the finish line. As an option, runners and walkers can participate in the 5K event only.
All activities will be supervised by ODFW trained volunteers; safety and education are our highest priority. This event is being done in cooperation with ODFW, volunteers and Pheasants Forever.
