One of the hardest things on a race morning is the fact that I have to get out of bed and put on running clothes. The 5th annual PJs to Pancakes 5k in West Linn takes that obstacle out of the equation by encouraging participants to wear their pajamas to the event! On July 21st, as part of the city’s Old Time Fair, children under 12 can run the 1-Mile Kids Dash, and athletes of all ages and abilities can run or walk the 5k in and around Willamette Park and along the river.
Packet pickup starts at 7am on race day. The kids dash takes off at 8am, and the 5k follows at 8:15am. After the race, pancake breakfast is served by the West Linn Lion’s Club.
