AM I GUARANTEED A T-SHIRT?

Participants are only guaranteed a t-shirt if you register before the t-shirt cut-off date, which for this event is FRIDAY, MARCH 20th at 11:59pm. Anyone registering after that date will need to wait until after they complete their race to check for any available t-shirts. Sizes are limited and definitely not guaranteed at that point. Avoid the hassle and register before the deadline!

WHERE DO I PICKUP MY PACKET?

TBD

HOW DO I GET THERE?

TBD

HOW DO I CHANGE MY PERSONAL INFO, RACE DISTANCE OR ADD MERCHANDISE?

You can update your personal info with the exception of your name (Gender, Date of Birth, Email Address, Day Phone, Mailing Address, Emergency Contact Name/Phone, How Did You Hear About This Event, t-shirt size and Custom Questions.) by following these steps

  • Click here
  • Enter the registration Confirmation Code
  • Select ‘EDIT: alter your registration details’
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.

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!

Use the TriMet trip planner to plan how to get there via public transit: https://newplanner.trimet.org/map/#/

WHERE DO THE RACES START AND FINISH?

TBD

WHERE IS THE KIDS RACE?

The kids race starts / finishes at the same start line for the adult races. Parents or guardians are welcome (and encouraged) to run with their kids at no charge. The race is an out and back and is about 1/4 of a mile. Kids will NOT receive a t-shirt but will receive a finisher medal at the end of the race.

WHEN IS THE AWARD CEREMONY / WHERE ARE THE AWARDS?

The award ceremony will take place at the post-race party at the main stage where the live music is played. The award ceremony times are TBD.

We will announce the top 3 male & female in each category (10k, 8k) and have goodie bags and plaques for those winners. We will NOT annouce top finishers in age groups. We will have ribbons for top 3 in age groups at the results kiosk by the finish line.

HOW / WHERE DO I GET MY ID CHECKED AND DO I REALLY NEED IT?

Yes, you definitely need your ID. You must have a stamp or a wristband to get your beer. It is best if you get your ID checked EARLY and get it done with. Then you can avoid one more line when you finish. We have an ID check set up starting in the morning. You can get your ID checked there or at the beer area.

IS THERE A GEAR CHECK?

For your convenience we have a complimentary clothing check, we have reusable bags for your use but we encourage you to bring your own. IMPORTANT! Please do not leave valuables at the gear check.  Although our gear checks are very safe and secure, we will not be responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.

CAN I LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE I RUN?

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.

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.

CAN I RUN WITH A JOGGING STROLLER?

Yes.

WILL THERE BE LONG LINES AT THE EVENT?

This is our biggest event of the year so YES there will be lines for the bathroom, food, beer, etc. We do our best to keep the lines moving quickly.

WILL THERE BE RUNNING GU OR GELS ON THE COURSE?

No, we do not provide any running gu or gel for any of the distances. We only provide gatorade and water at the aid stations. Please bring your own running fuel for the event. You can purchase various types of fuels at packet pickup before the race at Road Runner Sports.
