A finisher's medal is an optional purchase this year when you Register. Creating medals only for runners who want them prevents waste, conserves resources, and helps us reduce race costs so more dollars remain to support Albertina Kerr's vital services in our community.
We welcome racers of all paces. Our course will stay open to accommodate a pace of 12 to 15 minutes per mile. The city of Portland restricts ALL running/walking events to this timetable to be considerate of commuters, residents and retailers as well as event organizers. If you are unable to keep this pace you will be asked to continue the race on the sidewalk for your safety.
