The eighth annual Beat Beethoven’s 5th 1-mile and 5k race will be held in-person and virtually at COCC track October 9, 2022. The race benefits the Central Oregon Symphony.

The object is to finish the 5k before Beethoven’s 5th Symphony ends — 33 minutes and the music is on loud speakers at the track. Beethoven himself will be running the 5k race.

Since Bend is highly athletic, Central Oregon Symphony will combine the two- running and Classical music. Virtual race: run/walk the 5k or 1-mile from October 1-9, 2022. Please send in your name, picture and times (1-mile or 5k) to: There are several other Beat Beethoven races throughout the U.S.
