Run Like Hell is a Halloween-themed race that sees participants dress out in full costume for a run through Portland’s urban parks and along its waterfront areas along the Willamette River. Run Like Hell has become a Portland Fall tradition, come see why!
Last year, more than 4,000 runners and walkers crossed the finish line in all three races at the Fall running of Portland's Run Like Hell Half Marathon, 10K & 5K. Most were dressed in Superhero costumes as part of the theme.
The theme for 2013's Run Like Hell has not yet been announced.
THERE IS A 3 1/2 HR LIMIT ON THE 1/2 MARATHON.
A Benefit for ALS Association - Oregon & SW Washington Chapter
ABOUT ALS ASSOCIATION:
Since 2002, The ALS Association’s Oregon & SW Washington Chapter has been a lifeline for local people with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and their families. Our chapter serves the whole State of Oregon and the 6 counties in SW Washington, with an estimated 500 families, at any given time, living with ALS. These families turn to us for information, support groups, special equipment, respite care and guidance for coping with the day to day challenges. We are a Chapter of the National Organization that is the only not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. Ninety to ninety-five percent of those diagnosed with ALS have no family history of the disease. A fatal disease, ALS can affect anyone.
Our Mission: To lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global cutting-edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.
