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.

The 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, participants can raise money directly for their chosen cause!

There are no fundraising minimums or requirements.
