Spawning Run and Carcass Crawl
Wednesday, August 19, 7:00 – 9:00 AM
Tom McCall Waterfront Park
If you have been sitting too much and partaking too heavily in networking events’ food and beverages, then the spawning run is just the ticket for you. Race your colleagues and friends along the beautiful Willamette River in downtown Portland. Feeling more relaxed? Stretch your legs at a more leisurely pace in the Carcass Crawl, which will follow the same 3.1 mile route in the Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Follow the signs and migration to the start line. Runners will begin at 7 AM with Crawlers immediately behind. Refreshments at the finishing line await all participants and awards will be presented to the top finishers in multiple categories. Volunteers along the route will show you the way and keep your gills wet. Register on-line and check in at the spawning run booth in the convention center to receive race information and your t-shirt. Late registration will be allowed at the booth until 5 PM on Monday, but t-shirt size will not be guaranteed. All on-line registrants receive a commemorative t-shirt. All participants receive a renewed sense of energy for the remaining technical sessions.
