Pull on your sneakers and your brightest t-shirt, grab the kids, and get ready to Race for the Arts – the running event where art takes first place. Young Audiences is giving away two family run packages including registration for up to two adults (5K or 10K run) and up to three kids (1K run). All registrations include t-shirts and goody bags!
This brand new run will take place on September 14, 2013 at Hillsboro’s Liberty High School and features a 1K kids dash, 5K run/walk, and 10K run. Strollers are welcome on the course. After you run, stick around for live music by Aaron Nigel Smith, create original masterpieces at the Portland Children’s Museum Art Zone, enjoy free post-race refreshments, and special guests and surprises from arts organizations across the Metro area.
Day of registration open at 7:00 am on Saturday, September 14. The 10K run begins at 9:00am, the 5K at 9:20am, and the 1K dash at 10:15. The Art Zone will open at 9:00am. Advance registration is available at www.ya-or.org/race. All registrations include a technical t-shirt (cotton for the kids!) and goody bag. Advance packet pick-up will take place on September 12 at Sports Authority Clackamas and on September 13 at Sports Authority Beaverton.
Awards will be announced at 10:30am with prizes given to the top-finishing male and female in the 10K and 5K races.
This first Race for the Arts event builds on the success of Young Audiences in-school Run For The Arts which has raised over $14 million for in-school arts programs since its inception in 1977. Proceeds from the Race for the Arts will support Young Audiences work to inspire young people and expand their learning through the arts.
