ABOUT THE KIDS EVENT:
The kids’ race is a non-timed 1/2 mile event for children of all
ages. The cost for this event is $5 without a t-shirt. Parents are welcomed
and encouraged to run or walk with their kids. There is no cost for
parents to run with kids. The kids event starts and finishes where all
the other events start and finish
AFTER RACE PARTY / LIVE MUSIC / FOOD / BEVERAGE:
In 2014, the after-race party will be more of a festival-style event. With our decision to move to Lilis-Albina park, there will be much more room to spread out and relax. This year look for many different micro brews on tap (root beer for those under 21), awesome food and local live music.
As usual there will be fruit / bread and other goodies from several of our great sponsors!
The after-race party is free for all to attend. However, only registered participants
will receive the goodies FREE at the party.
There is a clothing check at this event. We use organic
cotton bags for this instead of plastic bags and we re-use them for all of our events. Please
be sure to help keep costs down and return them to us. To protect your
belongings, only the person wearing the bib with the matching # will
be allowed to retrieve the belongings in the bag.

layer of clothing.
