IS THERE A TIME LIMIT TO COMPLETE THE EVENT?
Yes there is. See below.
IMPORTANT! 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. Also, at any point during the event, if you fall behind the tail pace car, you MUST walk or run on the sidewalks. Please note that aid stations will be taken down immediately after the pace car goes past, so there may not be aid on the course if you fall behind.
HALF MARATHON TIME LIMIT: Everyone in the half marathon must maintain an 18 minute per mile or faster pace.
10K / 5K TIME LIMIT: For these events you have a little longer. We ask everyone to keep a 25 minute pace or faster.

There is not a lot of free parking around the Kliever Memorial Armory. As always we encourage you to take alternative transportation like bus, Lyft, Uber, or any of the many other great forms of transportation in Portland. If you must drive, please carpool.

The pre and post race party take place at Kliever Memorial Armory. The armory is located at 10000 NE 33rd Drive, Portland, OR 97211 The races start and finish on NE 33rd Drive just across from the armory.
WHERE IS THE KIDS RACE?
The kids race starts at the start line and finishes at the finish line for the adult races. It is a twice around loop that will be lead by Terrapin staff. Parents are welcome to run with their kids at no charge.
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?
CAN I COMPLAIN ABOUT LONG LINES FOR BEER AND FOOD ETC?
We try very hard to keep lines moving as fast as possible. Remember, when 3000 people all decide to wait til the last minute to pee or check their clothing, there will be a line. In fact any time 3000 people do anything, there is probably going to be a line. When 3000 people finish an event at the same time, there is going to be a line for beer and food. Keep it in perspective. You are getting some great beer and food and hopefully having an overall good time. There are gonna be lines.
