Are you up for another year of very inexpensive 5K races in Portland? This series began in 2012 and includes races in public parks located throughout the city.
The Parks and Recreation Department has just announced the dates and locations of its $5 5K Fun Runs, and registration opens soon. NOTE: These races always sell out very quickly after registration opens.
May 18 – Fernhill Park
June 15 – Lents Park
July 13 – Gabriel Park
August 17 – Laurelhurst Park
September 14 – Westmoreland
October 19 – Pier Park
All races start at 9:00 am (a civilized hour!) and include, in addition to the 5K run, a 1K kids’ fun run, a 40 foot rock climbing wall, music, and other kids’ activities. Registration begins on January 13; more info can be found here.
