Gabriel Park 5k is this weekend!

Greetings, Gabriel Park 5k Participants!

The Gabriel Park $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, July 13th at Gabriel Park, which is located at SW 42nd and Vermont. 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, July 10th at Southwest Community Center from 4-7pm. SWCC is located at the corner of SW 45th and Vermont. We would love to see you come out to spin our prize wheel and test your luck at winning one of our fun new prizes. 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 #44) and carpooling or biking to our events. Make sure to visit our course map page for a view of the Gabriel Park 5k map.

  • Free rock wall climbing on our 30 foot portable rock wall

  • Balloon animals

  • Face paint

  • Photos from our friends at North Clackamas Photo

  • Finisher ribbons for all participants

  • 1st through 3rd place medals for several age categories
