Father’s Day Weekend Running Event

What better way to spend Father’s Day weekend than running with (or for) your old man? Participants can sign up for a half marathon, 10k, 5k, or kid’s race, so the entire family can enjoy this event.

The courses are super flat and fast with a few inclines, but no major hills, making this event a great course for setting that new PR! The course provides great views of the Columbia river as well as the Cascade Mountains in the distance. And with such close vicinity to the PDX airport, watching a plane take off or land during the half marathon is likely, so make sure to look up every now and then while running the course!

The event starts and finishes at the Kliever Memorial Armory, where a family pancake breakfast, free beer & cider, local vendors, live entertainment, and a groovy tie-dye station make up the fun post-race party.

Come celebrate all the fathers, stepdads, uncles, grandfathers, or father figures who give us reasons to be grateful. The Grateful Dad is a wonderful addition to your Father’s Day weekend plans, and dad jokes are welcome every step of the way.
