Why is this race called the Scrub Run? The answer is that it’s a partnership with the Medical Society of Metropolitan Portland (MSMP), and the post-race festivities include a meal and a performance by the winner of the Annual Battle of the Doctor Bands.
And if you are really fast, you have a chance to win one of the cash prizes – $125 each for the male and female winners of the 5K and 1 mile races, and $500 for the winner of the 5K team race.
The entry fee covers the chip timing bib, finisher’s medal, meal, and concert. A special race shirt is available for $10, which helps support Dollar for Portland. There’s also a request to benefit Doernbecher Children’s Hospital by bringing an item on the kids’ wish list.
