Stroller and Dog Policy
The 5K and Half Marathon courses outside the METRO Blue Lake park utilize a four-foot wide bike and pedestrian path, wide enough to accommodate runners and walkers in two way traffic. We are asking that runners and walkers not bring strollers and/or bring dogs, due to the safety concerns.
Blue Lake Park charges $5 per car and this cost is not covered by ORRC or your registration. Alcohol and or pets are strictly prohibited in the park so please help us observe these policies.
The free ½ mile Kid’s Run is for ages 10 & Under and starts at 9:30 a.m. This out and back course is all within the park and is aimed at getting the whole family out to the park to enjoy the day. Parents may run with their kids!
The 5k winds through beautiful Blue Lake Park before and after the out and back portion on paved trails with views of the Columbia River and surrounding area. Participants in the 5K Walk (only) event must follow ORRC’s walking guidelines – keeping one foot on the ground at all times.
Participants in the 5K and half marathon events will receive a custom Blue Lake long-sleeve T-shirt (women’s and unisex fit) in addition to a medal.
