DECEMBER 13, 2020

Registration will open in September.

Participants must be at least 21 years of age.

Thanks to all our participants, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters who made the 2019 Holiday Dash 5K such a success and so much fun! 

Each year, Portland Trails & Ri Ra Irish Pub team up for this Portland holiday tradition featuring local craft brews! Run the trails in your festive gear, and enjoy a hearty beer-brunch with some winter cheer. We will run (and brunch) through snow, shine, wind or sleet!
