Race Preview: 2018 Beaverton Sun Run – A Run Oregon FEATURED RACE

The 6th Annual Beaverton Sun Run will include a 5K, 10K, and a Kids Dash. This annual event is improving its 10K route this year. Instead of running through the industrial area off of Denny Rd., 10K runners will continue on Fanno Creek Trail to the Greenway Trail. Since I ran the 10K last year (see my 2017 recap here), I am excited for this change to the route. More time off of the streets and on paved scenic trails is good news!

This event is put on by Beaverton Rotary and raises funds to support the variety of Rotary events held in the Beaverton community. It is a well-organized event with a festive atmosphere. My friend and I both enjoyed this race last year. I wrote this in my recap of the 2017 race:

My friend who had run the 5K said she loved the course, had a great run, and mentioned that “everyone was so friendly!” We both appreciated the big race organization of the event with the small race feel. A big “thumbs up” to the organizers for the great atmosphere and wonderful organization of the Beaverton Sun Run.

Both the 5K and 10K are out and back routes starting and finishing at ADAPT Training in Beaverton. The 5K is a run/walk, while the 10K is for runners only. Those who register by July 4 will get a t-shirt and all participants will receive a finisher medal.

And don’t forget about The Kids Dash! This is a free event for kids 10 and under and includes an obstacle course.
