About the Event

 The FIRST RUN of 2015 -
Start your new year off right with a
5K Run/Walk or 10K Run at Midnight on New Year’s Eve
along the waterfront in Downtown Portland!


It’s a Tradition! Make it yours!

The First Run & Walk will start at the stroke of Midnight. What better way to bring in the New Year than to celebrate with hundreds of your family, friends, and neighbors. The courses take participants along the waterfront and across 2 bridges, with spectacular nighttime views of the lights of our beautiful city. Enjoy the fitness benefits of a run or walk, and a celebration with food & beverages, music & dancing, and holiday fun before and after at One World Center! Costumes are encouraged! There will be a contest for best “get-up”.

For those who want to start off the New Year at Midnight in a kickin’-it kind of way, a 10K Run was added last year to the traditional 5K Run/Walk. The 10K course is a double-loop of the new, beautiful 5K course, which follows the waterfront on both the West and East Esplanades, and runs over the Steel and Hawthorne Bridges, offering participants spectacular views of the lights of our beautiful city reflected in the water!

DISTANCES: 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk
