Reed College 5k

FUNd run/walk for neighborhood schools

Join us on Saturday, September 22, 2018, for the Reed College 5K FUNd Run/Walk to support our local public elementary schools: Duniway, Grout, Lewis, Llewellyn, and Woodstock. One hundred percent of the registration fees and sponsorship dollars go directly to Portland Public Schools, to be split equally between the five schools.

Last year, we raised more than $35,000, helping over 2,000 children. With your support, we hope to match or beat last year’s success.

This event is open to community members of all ages and abilities. We invite the entire community to cheer on participants, join us for a free pancake breakfast, volunteer to support the run/walk, and tour Reed’s beautiful campus.

NEW! In 2018 we will be using Enphoto for our photography. We’ll capture you in high-resolution shots and track those shots using your unique bib number. Participants will have their photos uploaded to a photo platform, integrated with their results, and emailed directly to their inbox. Most participants will receive their photos within seconds or minutes after completing their race. Photos are free of charge! Share them on Facebook, tweet them, or download and print them out.

We do our best to capture great photos of everyone on race day, but we need your help! To make sure we’re able to accurately tag your pictures, wear your bib on the front of your body, and make sure it isn’t covered by clothing, race belts, etc.
