BEAVERTON, Ore. – On Sunday, May 28, the City of Beaverton will host the sixth annual Rose Festival Half Marathon.
This year’s route will begin and end at Southridge High School, and will weave through five neighborhoods, Old Town Beaverton, and along Fanno Creek Greenway Trail, taking runners on a scenic tour of the city.
There is still time for runners to register for the half marathon. Volunteers are also needed for the race day. To register or volunteer, visit www.BeavertonOregon.gov/run. Beaverton residents can receive $20 off registration through April 30 by using the promotion code BEAV20.
The City of Beaverton is hosting the half marathon for the first time this year, in partnership with the Beaverton School District, Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District, and the Portland Rose Festival.
