I have to admit, I think this race’s retro logo would be worth registering just to get the t-shirt.

Fit City 5k (Tualatin)

When: Saturday, April 17, 2010

Where: Juanita Poll Center in the Tualatin Community Park

What time: DOR registration starts at 8:30a and the race starts at 9a


Online via PayPal by April 14th for $20 per person or DOR for $30 per person. Families of 3 or more get a discount when signing up before the 16th at Road Runner Sports for only $15 per
person. Registration includes snacks at the finish, a t-shirt, and yes, friends, there will be prizes!

The run will start at Tualatin Community Park – where we had our RunOregon Tualatin group run on April 8th. The course makes use of the Tualatin River pedestrian bridge and the paved paths in Tigard’s Cook Park, and is part of a much larger event called the Fit City Health Fair, which will provide health and fitness information for runners and non-runners of all ages.
