It's Race Time!

Hello, Fernhill Park race participants! 

We are now only a few short days away from our first race of the season and hope that you are as excited as we are to kick off our 2014 race season! The Fernhill Park $5 5k race is on Sunday, May 18 starting at 9am; the 1k kids fun run will begin at 8:45am. Check-in begins as early as 7:30am and will close at 8:45am. Avoid the check-in crowd on the morning of the race by joining us at our pre-race bib pick up at Peninsula Park Community Center on Thursday, May 15, 4-7pm. Peninsula Park Community Center is at 700 N. Rosa Parks Way. Come spin our prize wheel for your chance to win one of our new prizes from the $5 5k Series and Portland Parks & Recreation. On race day, street parking is available, but we highly recommend using public transportation, carpooling, or biking to our events. Make sure to visit our course map page for a view of the Fernhill Park 5k map*. *The start and finish will NOW be on the track near NE 42nd Avenue.
