This 9 AM event is for 5k, 10k, and 15k runners. It is also for 5k and 10k walkers - we call these fitness walkers. There are over 500,000 fitness walkers in the Portland area, and that would include you and me! And, finally, teams may for to compete in a 15k Relay. The course is on the golf paths and on the fairways of the golf course.
Your little ones - it does not matter the size or age will run around the golf course on designated paths. This event is not too serious. We usually determine the length of the course just prior to the START based on the size of the kids. Last year we had two lengths - a 1k, and a .5k course for the kids. If you consider yourself a kid, you may run it also. The Kids Race is free - parents may purchase a Kids Medal for $10 or $12 for big-person medal at Packet Pick Up or at the race as long as supplies last.
Kids 12-and-under. This event is a little more serious. This is a timed race. Results will be posted online on the new Kids 1-Mile Leader Board. Cost is $10.00. Medal is included. Kids choose which color of medal they receive.
