Small Race Preview: 2018 CPRD Camellia 5k/10k Run/Walk (Newberg)

There is fun to be had for all at the 2018 CPRD Camellia Run/Walk in Newberg on Saturday, April 7th. There will be a fitness festival for you to enjoy with refreshments and some entertainment available at the Camellia Festival.

There are two distances to choose from for this event. There is a 10k which starts at 9:00AM and a 5k which follows at 9:05AM. The start line will be in front of the Chehalem Cultural Center (located at 415 E Sheridan St in Newberg.) If you’d like a sneak peak at the course maps, you can view the 5k course here and the 10k course here.

In celebration of the Camellia Festival, all participants will receive a potted one-gallon camellia as well as a Camellia Run t shirt. There will also be door prizes awarded! The cost is $30 for either race with a $5 discount for youth 18 and under (applied at checkout.) The price will increase to $35 on race day and shirts are only guaranteed through March 20th.

After your race, stick around for the Camellia Festival, which features performances by groups like Unit Souzou TaikoLee’s Lion and Dragon Dancers, and The Oregon Koto Ensemble. There will be lots of vendors selling food, jewelry, and crafts relating to Pan-Asian culture, as well as an area for demonstrations and art activities for the kids. There will also be trolley tours and the Oregon Camellia Society’s bloom show.  In other words, something for everyone to enjoy!
