The 2017 Beaverton Sun Run is back on Sunday, July 23rd

Get your shoes on and laces tied for the 5th Annual Beaverton Sun Run, occurring Sunday, July 23, 2017 at Griffith Park in Beaverton. The Beaverton Sun Run will be hosted by, and raising funds for the Beaverton Rotary, which will be used to assist families and children in the Beaverton area, and worldwide.

Participants may choose from a 10k or 5k run/walk, and a kids dash. This is an exceptionally family friendly event – fast, slow, runner, walker, strollers pushers and dog walkers, someone trying to “PR”, or even if you are just clocking some mileage or burning some calories – all abilities are welcome to participate. The 10k is more challenging and geared toward runners and the 5k, while still viable for all runners,  is perfect for the entire family.

Stay tuned to Run Oregon for a more detailed post on the course in the upcoming weeks.

The race day schedule is perfect for getting a race in, and having the rest of the day available to play! From 7 to 8a race-day registration will take place, and check-in will occur. 10k runners will begin at 8a., and 5k participants will begin shortly thereafter at 810a. Don’t forget to bring the kids as those 10 and under will get to take to the course at 9a for the kids dash.

All participants will receive a finisher’s medal and Golden Valley Brewing will be providing beer and pork sliders as well.  The event is capped at 300, so don’t delay. Groups with more than 5 people get a discount of $5 per person. Get registered for the Beaverton Sun Run, and help support the amazing things Beaverton Rotary does for local families. AND get in an excellent run/walk in the process.
