The course was super unique and took on some historical North Portland neighborhoods and the atmosphere and pre/post-race festivities were on point. Runners will get to experience cool neighborhoods like Mississippi and the artistic Alberta Arts neighborhood, run past beautiful Irving and Peninsula Parks, and navigate a number of cool roads that aren’t seen really in any other race.
The weekend kicks off with a huge celebration on September 16th. There are no official races this day, but its a great opportunity to pick up your packet and enjoy live entertainment, food, drinks, and our Soul-Fun vendor market. You could even win a raffle of a round trip ticket on Alaska Airlines.
It also benefits the Youth Entrepreneurship Program (ages 16 -24) – teaching professional development, expanding business skill set, and operating a successful business.
