The Eugene Science Center’s #RaceThroughSpace is a virtual race scaled at 1:1 billion miles that will be reaching all the planets (and dwarf planet Pluto) in our solar system during the month of July.This race takes place on a unique scaled Solar System Trail located in Eugene, Oregon following the Willamette River. This scaled path is the longest on the West Coast, and the only one in Oregon!
Race Through Space is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while exploring our solar system. Proceeds of this race support the Eugene Science Center and its mission to engage children, excite their curiosity, inspire them toward a lifelong love of learning about science and empower them to use science and technology to improve their communities.
This virtual race can happen at any time in July! We hope to make this a one-day event in the future, but to practice safe social distancing, we encourage you and your household or close circle to find a day in July to bike, walk, or run
