The Discovery Run is a free group scavenger hunt run held the last Thursday of the month during the spring/summer months. It’s a lot like the First Thursday Urban Adventure Run that Fit Right puts on – but this one is in Tualatin.
And the host store, Road Runner sports, has a deal for you: Save 10% on anything in their store. No exclusions. (Had your eye on a Garmin?) If you’re one of their VIP participants (become one by buying the $19.99 Discovery Run t-shirt) you save 20%. Just mention “RunOregon” when you’re checking out to get the discount – any day, too – not just the day of the run!
The biggest difference (aside from the location) is that the Discovery Run starts at 6:30p. This gives those of you working downtown ample time to brave the I-5 traffic. Check in opens at 5:30p and the raffle starts at 7:30p.
Kids and well-behaved, leashed dogs are invited, as are runners and walkers alike. This is a suitable activity for a family, and a lot of fun on a nice sunshiny day!
Another difference is that in order to get a free beer, you have to check in by noon on Discovery Run day. Otherwise it’s $3/beer. You can also get a beer ticket at each Discovery Run by wearing the Discovery Run t-shirt, which is available for $19.99 at Road Runner Sports.
