Small Race Preview: PJ’s to Pancakes 5k run/walk and kids 1 mile dash (West Linn)

I’m one of those runners who takes hours to decide on the final race outfit the night before a race which I then have to triple check I have every piece of gear I need. And then check it again right before I go to bed too! I really think I stress myself out sometimes, so the idea of doing a race where I could just practically roll out of bed and go run sounds very liberating!! If you are maybe like me and need to chill out or if you are just looking for something fun to do, the PJ’s to Pancakes 5k is your race!

Now in it’s 3rd year as part of the West Linn Old Time Fair, the PJ’s to Pancakes 5k run/walk encourages its runners to run in their PJ’s through beautiful Willamette Park. The 5k route weaves through the park and then out on to Volpp Street along the Willamette River and finishes with a pancake breakfast for everyone. There is also the 1 mile kids dash in the Park and all kids gets a ribbon and a coupon for a free kid’s meal or Italian soda from Old Spaghetti Factory. So get out your best PJ’s and have some fun!
