The Lake Oswego Lake Run is Almost Here!

This year we have had a very exciting opportunity to partner with the Lake Oswego Women’s Club for the 42nd annual Lake Oswego Lake Run.

All proceeds from the run will go toward the rebuilding of the Annie Ross House emergency shelter, Clackamas County’s only shelter for families.

Northwest Housing Alternatives’ Director of Resource Development Kristin Barber, as well as Lake Run chair Tamara Vanderpool, were recently featured on KGW to talk about the upcoming event:

There are still several spots left for volunteers. Sign up here.

Or you can sign up to participate in the 5K, the 10K, or the kid’s dash!

Start the morning with the Family Fun Festival, complete with a DJ, face-painting and crafts for the kids. Stroll through exhibitor booths and visit nearby restaurants for a quick beverage or snack. Continuing NHA’s annual tradition, there will also be a plant sale with hanging baskets and annuals available just in time for Mother’s Day!

This year’s 10K will take runners back to the lake route that everyone loves to hate.  Runners will climb McVey Avenue and proceed along South Shore Boulevard around Oswego Lake to Iron Mountain Boulevard where the finish will be down hill onto Evergreen Street at Millennium Plaza Park.

The 5K will meander around Lakewood Bay and onto North Shore Road giving runners and walkers alike a grand view of the main lake.  Participants will continue on Iron Mountain Boulevard and head towards the finish on Evergreen Street.

The Kids’ dash will begin at the finish area on Evergreen Street and 2nd Street with a quick two block dash that turns around and finishes under the finish line arch.
