The OSCON 5k Glow Run/Walk and Finish Line Festival is back. This year expect more glow, a cool new venue, special effects, frothier foam dance floor, beer, and prizes. Same great views and scenic course around the Waterfront Loop, great dance music, beer garden, and food cart.

You don’t have to be a serious runner, go at your own pace, and if you want to stop and smell the roses, or dance at our on-course sound and illumination stations, go right ahead. Prizes will be given out for “best dressed”, “best themed”, “most innovative glow gear”, and “best party rockers”. REGISTER NOW for the 5k run/walk and then glow crazy at the Finish Line Festival.

Open to all OSCON attendees for a unique opportunity to network, be active, and see the city of Portland.

Race start/finish line takes place at Ankeny Plaza Pavilion. The nearest MAX stop is Skidmore Fountain

@Anne-Jeanette – unfortunately no roller skates are allowed due to liability reasons. Its a great idea though, maybe we should have a special roller skate heat next year!

Is there some signup specifically for the 5K that we need to do like in past years? I don’t see a place to get on the list. (I’m already registered for the conference itself).
