The Course - There are two courses to choose from: We Walk the 2.5 mile "Bridge to Bridge" route begins on SW Naito Parkway near Stark St. You'll proceed down a car-free Naito Parkway, head over the Hawthorne Bridge, along the Eastbank Esplanade, over the Steel Bridge, and back to Waterfront Park. It's dog-friendly and features great views of the city.
Starting Times - Runners leave at 9 am for the 2.5 mile run. The runners are followed immediately by several "waves" of walkers on the 2.5 mile route, who are next followed by walkers on the 1.5 mile loop at 9:45 am.
When Should I Get There? - We suggest you pick up your registration bib in advance (at one of three pick-up locations; see below), thus avoiding the need to stand in the registration line at the event. If you can't pick up in advance or you are registering the day of the event, we suggest you arrive at the registration tent at least 30 minutes prior to the start time.
Where Should I Go When I Get There? - If you have not yet registered in advance, or if you have registered in advance and not picked up your bib (and t-shirt, if you qualify for one), you need to go to the Registration Tent. This large tent is located on the east side of Waterfront Park, across from Pine Street and up and across from the Battleship Oregon monument.
Advance Pick-Up Locations - Beat the lines at Doggie Dash by getting your race bib in advance. If you have raised $15 or more, you can also pick up your t-shirt. Haven't registered yet? You can register at these events as well.
