First Thursday is this Thursday

July's First Thursday is here (already) so get your friends together and mark your calendar to head to NW Portland and go for a run (or walk). As always, the maps come out at 6p, the raffle starts at 7p, and the party goes until 8p. This is a FREE event, open to runners and walkers, hosted by locally-owned Fleet Feet Sports PDX. Remember, it's not a race; you need to stay safe and obey all traffic laws. The details:  When: Thursday, July 7, 2016 What time: The run starts at 6p but people start showing up as early as 5:15p Where: On NW 22nd Ave, between Quimby and Raleigh, near Fleet Feet PDX at 2258 NW Raleigh Register: Onsite by signing a waiver, or ahead of time online here for a few extra raffle tickets when you check in

Bring: Your ID if you plan on getting a beer, smartphone or camera, and dry clothes to change into after running – I also recommend bringing as many friends as you can!

Park: On surface streets; the streets to the immediate northeast of the start location are usually pretty clear

Future dates are:

Thursday, August 4
Thursday, Sept 1

About Kelly Barten (1152 Articles)
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.
