Laurelhurst Park $5 5k

The Laurelhurst $5 5k is coming up this weekend, which means it is time to answer all of your questions about the big day! The race will begin at 9am on Sunday, August 17th at Laurelhurst Park, which is located at SE Cesar Chavez BLVD & Stark Street. The 1k kid’s fun run will begin at 8:45am and is led by our friends from Foot Traffic. Check-in begins as early as 7:30am and will close at 8:45am.

To be prepared on race day, we offer a bib pick-up day on Thursday, August 14th at the Fremont Foot Traffic (41st and NE Fremont) from 4-7pm. We would love to see you come out to win some fun new prizes and shop at Foot Traffic! If you can’t make it on Thursday, you will also be able to pick up your bib on the morning of the race!

On race day, street parking and use of the parking lots is acceptable. However, we also highly recommend using public transportation (Bus #75) and carpooling or biking to our events. Make sure to visit our course map page for a view of the Laurelhust Park Race Route.
