The Portland 5k Event features tough events - you will be tougher when you are finished. You may participate in one of the following events:
Portland 5k Team event with 5 - 10 team members
School Cross Country Invitational
Spectators - your friends, family, and other cheering sections may stay on the inside of the track, or on the outside of the track. The Portland International Raceway has a pedestrian bridge that goes over the racetrack, so you may walk back and forth. You may also set up a tent on either side of the bridge. You may put things in your tent that help your participant - things like dry clothes, a heater, cot, blankets, water. If you form a team of 30 participants, Portland 5k will purchase a customized tent for your team (three weeks are needed to manufacture your team tent).
Parking - when you enter the Portland International Raceway grounds, you will pay a $10.00 car/$50 bus parking fee. Parking attendants will help you find the perfect parking space.
Medical - Acceleration Sports Medicine of Tigard, Oregon will provide medical assistance before, during, and after the event. Read about Acceleration Sports Medicine - CLICK HERE.
Gear Check - you will keep track of your gear. The event is very close to parking, and the event allows you to have friends, family, and cheering sections - they will help you with your gear.
Food - The Portland International Raceway provides food vendors. Available for purchase will be cold and hot sandwiches and drinks. Portland 5k participants will receive a food and drink voucher that you may use to purchase a great post-race meal.
