Keep those wheels turning and the fire burning all summer long when you join in our seasonal 5K series. This low-key, high-yield trio of races gives you the chance to test your training, improve your times, and compete with yourself. Race in June and then focus on your 5K improvement. Train hard, do some speed work, try some hill repeats, or add some miles to your weekly load. Then come back in July and do it again. Your progress might surprise you! Race. Train. Repeat! Set yourself up for a PR in August for the series finale. Whether you are training for a PR or just looking for a great avenue to set some goals for 2021, The Summer 5K Race Series is the ideal platform.

Run anywhere in the world or try one of our suggested routes right here in Portland, OR.

For so many people, focusing on exercise and fitness took a backseat last year.  We think exercise and fitness is a major part of the BIG picture. And for those who have dusted off their high school PE uniforms, and busted out their old sneakers to give running or walking a second chance, Welcome Back! Rediscovering fitness is a silver lining of 2021 and we are proud to be a part of your comeback!
