Run for the River

3 Miles, 2 Bridges, 1 River


With the iconic Willamette River as the backdrop, The Freshwater Trust is partnering with the Portland Triathlon to launch the Run for the River 5K and 1K Stream Stride. The fun run will begin in Waterfront Park, circling you around the Willamette River through parks and over bridges and crossing a living finish line to end at the popular post-race festival. Enjoy organic food, local beer, festive music and interactive family-friendly activities.


Not only is Run for the River a fundraiser for a conservation not-for-profit, the event will also adhere to green standards, incorporating organic cotton race shirts and carbon offsets for all greenhouse gas emissions. All of the food is locally sourced and organic, the waste is recycled and composted, and we’ve eliminated plastic water bottles by offering a portable water station with compostable cups (for an even bigger impact, bring your own water bottle!).


So grab your friends, families and strollers, and join The Freshwater Trust to run 3 miles over 2 bridges for 1 river!
