Event Overview

Registration for The Inaugural Portland 10 Miler is now CLOSED. The event is 100% sold out. We’re thrilled and humbled by the overall response to the inaugural race, and can’t wait for April 22.

2018 Entrant List

Registered participants will receive their race bib with timing chip and athlete shirt at bib pick-up. Since the race is sold out, we will NOT be offering onsite registration.

All participants must present a photo ID to pick-up their bib. Participants may pick-up for friends and family, but must provide a copy of the ID or a photo of the ID on their phone for verification – we will be diligently checking ID’s to ensure no runners bibs are handed out without their permission. It is recommended that all participants attend Saturday registration at Rising Tide to enjoy a beer and to alleviate race morning delays.

Our Mission

A portion of each registration fee will be donated directly to our non-profit partner Spurwink who provides behavioral health and education services for children, adults and families.

In addition to donating a portion of every registration fee to Spurwink, we encourage our runners to set their own fundraising goal for Spurwink, or any charity close to their hearts. By setting up a fundraiser on Crowdrise.com, participants can raise money directly for their chosen cause!

There are no fundraising minimums or requirements.
