Tualatin River Run 5K


Introducing the All New Tualatin River Run!

When Spring has Sprung and your legs and lungs are begging you to hit the trails and roads, there’s nothing better to get you motivated than an awesome and fun 5K event . The Tualatin River Run 5K, presented by Run With Paula Events,  is sure to provide plenty of motivation, competition, scenery, and that signature Run With Paula organization. Tired of the same old downtown routes? This all new 5K uses the best portions of the Tualatin River Greenway Path between the Tualatin Public Library and Browns Ferry Park. It’s flat. It’s fast. It’s scenic! It’s a 5K designed just for you.
