IS THERE A TIME LIMIT TO COMPLETE THE EVENT?
Yes there is. The city of Portland requires events that take place in downtown to maintain a 15 min per mile pace. We ask that everyone run / walk 15 minutes per mile or faster. If you happen to fall behind the pace tail car, you must walk or run on the sidewalks. Also, as a participant, it is your responsibility to begin the event on time. If you are late for the event and the tail pace car has already left the start area, you MUST run or walk on the sidewalk until you get ahead of the tail vehicle. The roads behind the vehicle are open to traffic and it is imperative to your safety that you do this.
CAN I RUN WITH MY DOG?
If you have a service dog, you are welcome to run with your dog. Otherwise we do not allow dogs, cats, monkeys, zebras etc into the event.

Yes you can. However, please keep the volume at a reasonable level for everyone’s safety. There is always a chance that emergency vehicles or the occasional random vehicle might be present on the course and you will need to hear them coming.
IS THERE PARKING?
There is plenty of parking in downtown Portland. There is on-street parking as well as many Smart Parks located near the start / finish. However, we encourage everyone to carpool or take public transportation. There are MAX stops within blocks of the start / finish. We also encourage you to ride your bikes to our events!
