As the sun begins to set over the beautiful Portland skyline, get ready to run in a fast and flat half marathon, 10k or 5k through Sellwood and along the Springwater Corridor. The race starts and finishes at beautiful Sellwood Riverfront Park. Before the run, throw around the frisbee, jump in the river for a swim, or just relax in the sun.
After you run, stick around for the River Lantern Lighting and drinks as the live music in the park takes you into the night. Sunset on the Springwater is an intimate, “fun in the sun” event for the whole family.
