SE Water Ave & Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, Oregon


Please join me for a 5K (3 mile) walk or run on the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade. We will pick up the trail at Water St/Main St. (near the firehouse) and walk North until we get to the Steel bridge (1.5 miles, 2.5K), then we will turn back around.

More on the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade:

This is going to be a very informal event. No time chips, just a group of friends getting together to enjoy getting smelly & sweaty! This will be a kid friendly, jogging stroller, dog friendly event.

Please bring your breakfast/lunch and join us for a "picnic" after the walk at our starting point.

I am going to be in George, WA watching live musical events and camping that weekend.


Hey Brian, If the event goes well, I might do them quarterly, so you can join us at the next one!


Not clear when everyone will run. 8am? Says it goes to 11pm, so... somewhere in there? :)


Hi Patrick,

Since it is very informal, people can start when they want, but I am aiming for 8:15 am.


Awesome! I'll try to come, not sure if I'll make it. But since you said such nice things about my novella-length post, I'll be there in spirit, regardless. :-)


I'm really interested, but realised that I too like Brian, will be in George, WA. But great idea! Let's do another one again.


Jason, Sharon: Glad to hear you are interested, I figured it was time to stop talking about it and actually do it! Like I said, we may make this a regular thing. :)


This is awesome - I have been looking for walking events that didn't require me to pay a fee. Miss Burrows FTW!!


These things are usually done for a cause is this just for fun?


Kemble: Just for fun! It's 100% free and 100% informal. Join us if you can!


8am? I thought this was for geeks! ;P


Id go but 8am on saturday does not exist. how about 9am?
