Portland Parks & Recreation - 5K Fun Run Series - Gabriel Park
Run for the fun of it! Portland Parks & Recreation's 5k Series are family-friendly 5k races that take place monthly from April through October at parks throughout the Portland area. We celebrate participation of all ages, along with athleticism and friendly competition. We welcome new walkers and runners, as well as our seasoned racers. On race day, participants will have the opportunity to time themselves off of our sports clock and every finisher gets a ribbon! Each event features: A Children's Fun Run (1k or 2k), a 5k start for racers who run sub 30 minutes and a later 5k start time for all participants. We'll also have raffle prizes, music, face paint, crafts, vendors, and lots of bananas. SO, SO many bananas. We look forward to seeing you this season!
Register by phone please call 503-823-2525. Register online or register in person on race day! Register in person at any Portland Parks & Recreation Community Center.
