Discovery Run is this Thursday in Tualatin – Plus a promo code for Road Runner Sports

Discovery Run HeaderThe 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.

Have you run this one? Let us know your thoughts by emailing us at! Please disclose if you are affiliated with RRS or any sponsors – not that we don’t want your opinion, we just like to keep it on the up and up.

Here are the vitals:

When: Thursday, April 24, 2014

What time: 6:30p

Where: Road Runner Sports at 7063 SW Nyberg Street (just off I-5)

Register: Check in online here or at the event. (Do it online by noon on Thursday for the free beer ticket!)

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
