  • This location is shown only to members

Join Northwest VEG for a fun 10k or 5k run/walk Race for the Animals to generate awareness of a plant-based lifestyle and to raise money for our education and outreach campaigns.

Lace up your shoes and come run or walk an extinct volcano!
Enjoy chip trails, pavement, stairs and lovely views around Mt. Tabor's three reservoirs and the summit. Finish the fun with a post-run/walk picnic of fruit, breads & spreads, and sweet treats. A great time for the whole family!

10K start time: 8:30 AM
5K start time: 9:00 AM
Bib Pick-Up onsite June 30th: 7:30-8:45 AM
Post Run Picnic: Fruit, sweet treats, bread and nut butters for race participants.
Awards: While awards will be given to the first female and male finishers in each age group, this event is really all about fun, saving animals and the environment!

      Can't wait to see it. I never did hear back from Willamette Week or the Oregonian, or OP

      wrong button... or OPB, or KINK after I e-mailed them the press release. Next year we'll be able to start earlier and try more avenues.

    It was the perfect Sunday morning. Great course, well-placed volunteers and water stations, great energy at the event, great people, great food post-event -- especially from Veggie Grill: super-generous with the kale salad and free entree card!

    it was just ducky witnessing the army of volunteers in action making this long awaited race happen. If anyone is missing a very large Avery Marks-a-Lot Permanent Marker I now have two where before I just had just the one. Let me know I'll bring it to the 4th of July picnic or get it back to you some other way.

    If anyone else is doing the 5k and wants to just carpool and park in my parking lot or near the park that'd be great!

    Just a reminder. If you wait until the day of the Race to register, it costs $5 more. Also, there will probably not be any t-shirts available to purchase at the race. If you want one, you need to order it with your pre-registration. We're running out fast! We also need more volunteers. If you want to volunteer, email Chelsea at [masked]
    Thanks!

    This is an absolutely gorgeous course with the views of the city, the trails under the tree canopy, the flat runs around the reservoir, and the challenge of all those stairs. I recommend everyone start some stair training today -you'll feel so good when you conquer those stairs and reach the top of the volcano!
