Free kids run this Sunday at the Beaverton Sun Run

Here’s another great event with a free kids dash! And it’s this Sunday, so now you know the answer to “what are we doing this weekend?”

Organizer Patrick O’Flynn describes the kids run: “The kids dash will have various distances, depending on ages. Older kids will go about 50 yards. We will let parents determine what “older” means. Last year we had a few 4 year olds and we had them run about 15 yards. It was awesome. The kids dash will be on the grass at Griffith Park … so hope for sunshine!!! All participants will receive medals so they can relive their glory until next year.”

The Beaverton Sun Run is put on by Beaverton Rotary, and raises funds for the Beaverton Police Athletic League (PAL) and Home Plate Youth Services. Read our full preview here.

I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
