Central Oregon Symphony Association is putting on its very first Beat Beethoven’s 5th 5k & 1 mile run/walk.
The object is for runners to begin the 5k with the opening notes of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, broadcast by KPOV over loud speakers, and finish before the symphony ends (about 33 minutes). The race is scheduled to take place Aug. 23 at 9 a.m. at the Central Oregon Community College track.
Individual companies are encouraged to participate as teams. The event will include team awards, costume contests, a photo-op with Beethoven himself, food and beverages, as well as a raffle. After the symphony ends, there will be a live performance by the Summit Express Jazz Band.
