The Lents 5k is Almost Here

Good Morning, Runners!

The second 5k of the season is now less than a week away, which means it is time to get those last few training runs in before the big day. The Lents Park $5 5k race is on Sunday, June 15th starting at 9am and the 1k kid’s fun run will begin at 8:45am. Check-in begins as early as 7:30am and will close at 8:45am.

In order to be prepared for race day and avoid the line, we will be offering pre-race bib pick up at Mt. Scott Community Center on Thursday, June 12th from 4 to 7pm. Mt. Scott Community Center is located at 5530 SE 72nd Ave and we will have our tent set up across the street from the gas station at SE 72nd and Harold. Come spin our prize wheel for your chance to win one of our new prizes from the $5 5k Series and Portland Parks and Recreation. You can also pick up your bib on the morning of the race.

On race day, street parking and the parking lot located near SE 92nd and Holgate is available, but we highly recommend using public transportation (Bus #17), carpooling, or biking to our events. Make sure to visit our course map page for a view of the Lents Park 5k map.
