Race Preview: 2019 Reed College 5k FUNd Run/Walk (Portland) – THIS WEEKEND

Nestled in SE Portland, Reed College is an impressive school with an equally impressive aesthetic. The lovely brick buildings are complemented by the stunning Reed Canyon, and on Saturday, September 21, runners and walkers are invited to explore the campus at the Reed College 5k FUNd Run/Walk. As they say in their mission statement, “Reed College is […] devoted to the intrinsic value of intellectual pursuit,” so it should come as no surprise that the this race benefits local public elementary schools including Duniway, Grout, Lewis, Llewellyn, and Woodstock. The money raised will be divided evenly among the five schools, so participants can race with pride knowing their morning jog is helping over 2,000 Portland students.

The race will begin and end at Reed College Quad in front of the Gray Campus Center, and the course goes through and around campus. Runners and walkers of all paces are welcome, and the results will be captured accurately with EnMotive chip timing. Following the race, all participants are invited to join a free pancake breakfast, and high-resolution photos of the day will be available for free thanks to EnPhoto.

The Reed College 5k FUNd Run/Walk is a fun event for all ages, and it gets to the heart of what makes this community so special. Not only does Reed College talk the talk of valuing intellectual pursuits, but by bringing people together and helping fund Portland public schools, they are quite literally walking (or running) the walk.

About Kate Ellingsen (22 Articles)
Running brings me immense joy and peace. Like the fabled tortoise, my pace is slow and steady. I ran my first marathon in 2011, then lost my focus following a cross country move in 2012, gradually working my way back to 26.2 miles. I have no aspirations of qualifying for the Olympics or even Boston. The road is big enough for all runners, and my only goal is to be happy and well. Location: Portland, OR 26.2 x 6 13.1 x 11
