Preview: The Kilted Kilometer in Newport

Kilted Kilometer

The Kilted Kilometer looks awesome! Photo from

“Run for Shelter” – not because you’ll be wearing a kilt, but to raise money for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter – at the 2014 Kilted Kilometer on Friday, June 13.

Yes, you have to wear a kilt. (They have loaners, and yes, you must wear undergarments.)

It is only a kilometer, so I suggest you bring some “non-runners” and either get them to try running or have them walk and just have a great time. Kids are very welcome, as our well-behaved pups on leashes. (Four-legged participants don’t need to wear kilts.)

When: Friday, June 13, 2014

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.
