Race for the Roses
Two distances—half marathon and 5k—give everyone an opportunity to run or walk through the community they’re helping to support. The Oregon Convention Center serves as our base of operations, meaning you stay warm and dry before and after your run, no matter what the conditions. Scenic, fast and accurate courses show off the best of the city, and are stocked with aid stations to keep you from wilting before the finish. Roses and medals are given out to every finisher, while a large spread of food awaits to replenish your energy. Raffle prizes for the simply lucky and top finisher awards for the fleet of foot add to the festivities.
Half Marathon: 7:00 a.m., Check-in by 6:30 a.m.
