This 9 AM event is for 5k, 10k, and 15k runners. It is also for 5k and 10k walkers - we call these fitness walkers. There are over 500,000 fitness walkers in the Portland area, and that would include you and me! And, finally, teams may for to compete in a 15k Relay. The course is on the golf paths of the golf course, and follow the paths at this course - CLICK HERE.
The Zombie Shuffle is only for those who consider themselves race walkers. This includes walking-club members who may enter race walking events. Members of USA Track & Field are occasionally race walkers. A 5k, 10k. 15k, and 15k Relay are available in this event. The course - CLICK HERE.
This event is very popular. The event is for runners of the 5k, 10k, and 15k. It is also for Fitness Walkers (you and me) in the 5k event. The course - CLICK HERE.
This Run is greeted by the rising of the moon. Starts at dusk, and ends with darkness. Everyone wears a headlamp - making this an experience people in the world have not experienced. Running on a golf course is a great-time, and fun, experience in Oregon! This is a 5k Run and Walk event. Take your time, and work up an appetite for the BBQ experience that follows. The course - CLICK HERE.
Your little ones - it does not matter the size or age will run around the golf course on designated paths. This event is not too serious. We usually determine the length of the course just prior to the START based on the size of the kids. Last year we had two lengths - a 1k, and a .5k course for the kids. If you consider yourself a kid, you may run it also.
Participants in a 5k, 10k, 15k, Run or Walk event get a Halloweenathon medal - yours to keep, and yours to brag about. The medal is 4-inches tall, and the bones ! You should keep the door closed because it is kind of scary.
Remember, first time 5k'ers take home the welcome necklace as well.
This year, Famous Dave's BBQ will serve us at the Halloweenathon at the 6:45 PM dinner.
Hearing loss is the #1 birth defect in the United States. 95% of the time deaf/hard of hearing babies are born into typically hearing families with no experience with hearing loss leaving parents with no knowledge how to bond with their newborn, or knowledge of what the future will hold for their child. Hands & Voices is the only entity in Oregon providing support, education and advocacy to parents of deaf/hard of hearing children so that our children will grow to be happy, contributing members of our community.
