POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
First $5 5K Run - May 17, 2013

The popular $5 5K run/walk series starts up again this Sunday at Fernhill Park!

 

5K run/walks are scheduled in neighborhoods around Portland from May to October, and are a great way for you to stay in shape for a great price.

 

The series started last year, and brought over 2,000 runners and walkers to races around town. This year, we are planning for even bigger turnouts. Portland Parks & Recreation has added more courses for all types of athletes - some flat, and others with more challenging inclines.

 

The race on Sunday is sold out, but the waitlist is still open. If you are interested in running you can visit the $5 5K series page on the PP&R website to be added to the waitlist.

 

You can also enjoy other fun activities like climbing a 40-foot rockwall, music, various kid activities and much more.

 

Lace up, cut loose, and have fun!

 

Can’t make it this weekend?  Visit PP&R’s website to sign up for a future race!
