Eagle Run 2017


The 9th annual Allen Eagle Run took place Saturday, February 25th at 8:00 AM. Last year’s record was broken when more than 3,500 participants runners and observers attended. It is estimated that over 1,300 vehicles entered the parking lot at Eagle Stadium. Thanks to Allen CERT, everyone was quickly directed to a parking spot and, when the race ended, were efficiently navigated out of the lot.
