As a parent who runs, I have taken each of my kids to races during the years. From first pushing them in strollers to slowly getting them into running 5k’s with me, it has been a fun transition. However, as a parent of three young girls, it’s also nice to have an option that doesn’t cost me a lot in the process. The Edge Family Fitness Run, held on September 9th in Wilsonville, is right on the money (or lack thereof), by offering a free event for the whole family!
There are three different options to choose from:
- Scenic 5k
- Terrian & Obstacle 5k
- Kids Mud Run (1-mile)
The events are held at Sandelie West Property and are for adults and kids alike and should provide something for everyone. Though there should be a lot of people out there, I would believe that this is pretty low-key, with a focus on fun and energy as opposed to a professional race experience. But for a free event for the entire family, you really can’t go wrong. The race supports the Wilsonville Kiwanis Club.
There will be nominal fee at the gate for participants and spectators who are not pre-registered and on-site parking must be pre-purchased as there is limited on-site parking. However, free parking and shuttles will be offered from Wilsonville High School.
After the race, stick around for a great after-party, which will have a full band, food options (BBQ and ice cream), as well as drink options (beer and wine for the adults). There will also be a kid’s zone which will have tons of yard games – bounce houses, horse shoes, bean bag, tag, etc!
