Fernhill $5 5k is on Sunday, May 17th, 2015!

Hello, Fernhill Park Race Participants! 

We are now a few weeks away from our first race of the season and we hope that you are as pumped as we are to kick off our 2015 race season! We have some exciting changes coming this year and we look forward to seeing you there!

The Fernhill Park $5 5k race is on Sunday, May 17th starting at 9:00am! The 1k Kid’s Fun Run will begin at 8:45am and will be led by our friends at Foot Traffic. Here are some reminders for the big day:

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 Foot Traffic on Saturday, May 16 from 4:00-7:00pm. Foot Traffic is located at 4020 NE Fremont Street, Portland, Oregon 97212.

  • On race day, street parking is available, but we highly recommend using public transportation (Bus #72), carpooling, or biking to our events.
