This event, Portland's "Free to Breath Run/Walk", kicks off with an opening rally at 8:30 a.m. at the Eastbank Esplanade (Main Street Plaza) in downtown Portland. The Kids' Dash will take place at 9 a.m., and the 5K run/walk will take to the streets at 9:05 a.m. and 9:10 a.m. respectively. For those choosing the 1-mile walk, you'll zip out of the starting gates at 9:15 a.m. All events are un-timed. A closing rally will begin at 10 a.m.
You registration fee of $25, or $15 for participants 12 and under, will provide entry into either event distance, a 2016 Free to Breathe event t-shirt, entertainment and refreshments. Event morning registration is available for $5 more, and you may not be guaranteed a t-shirt, so register early (and save $5 with the discount code!). Additionally, kids activities and a local DJ will be on site mixing some great tunes. All participants are eligible for incredible door prizes and other giveaways that will be taking place.
What is especially nice about the Free to Breathe event is that your registration fee goes towards any fundraising efforts. I especially like this - if you raise $100 you will receive a Hero Cape to wear at the event!
