Small Race Preview: 2019 Portland Parks & Recreation 5K Series – Pier Park on July 14

The July race in the Portland Parks & Recreation’s 5k Series will be on Sunday, July 14th in North Portland’s Pier Park.

The races in this awesome series are a great deal (only $10 for an adult registration!) and are set up for serious racers, casual joggers, walkers, and a smaller race for kiddos as well. Often featuring loops of local parks, it’s a great way to spend a morning in your community (or venturing to a new one!) and giving back to Portland Parks & Rec.

*All* finishers receive a ribbon, and there are usually family-friends activities such as face painting, crafts, vendors, music, raffles, and “SO SO many bananas”!

Be sure to check out their Facebook page for more info!
