A Virtual 5K with Willamalane
April 22–May 1


Virtual Race Details
Run, walk, or roll a 5K your way! You choose the time, the scenery, and the surface. From April 22–May 1, run a 5K — you can get up early and run the dirt and mulch paths at Dorris Ranch,* go out on your lunch break and jog or walk the sidewalks in your neighborhood, or get on your treadmill as the sun is setting and crank out 3.1 miles while you watch Frozen 2. You don't have to be local to participate — challenge your friends and family wherever they might be. Registration is only $5, and all proceeds will benefit Senior Meals, Cafe 60 located at Willamalane Adult Activity Center and their efforts to provide drive-through meals to seniors.

*Remember if you run outside — please follow social distancing guidelines! You can find them at willamalane.org/parks.
