Beat Beethoven — Central Oregon Symphony will hold its third annual Beat Beethoven’s 5th 5K Fun Run/Walk at 9 a.m. Saturday in Bend. The objectives? Support the community orchestra, and see if you can run a 5K — that’s 3.1 miles for the metrically challenged — before the approximately 33-minute tune is finished (radio station 88.9 KPOV-FM will broadcast Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 during the race). That’s an 11-minute-mile pace. You got that! But in the event you don’t, there’s a 1-mile run and a kids race, as well.
