    Sounds Fun!

    I’d love to attend because I’m out of shape from eating so many Christmas treats. Winning tickets to participate in a 5K will get me back up and running again and who wouldn’t want to run 3.1 miles on the worst day of the year!?

    I would love to win! Trying to run as many races before my first half marathon in April!!

  4. Nate Edwards January 16, 2018 at 12:16 pm #

  13. Jodi January 16, 2018 at 4:17 pm #

    I’m entering the contest because I’ve never done this race before A) cuz: crappy weather and I’d rather be in bed but need to get out and run! B) it’s a trail run which will be super fun C) it will be my first race of the year!

  14. molli taylor January 16, 2018 at 4:35 pm #

  16. Christine Van Halder January 16, 2018 at 7:16 pm #

    This sounds like a lot of fun. I have never been in an event like this before. I would love to win entry ticket.

  17. Phil D January 17, 2018 at 12:48 am #

    Because this is the last possible thing I’d probably ever do, it’s best that I win these tickets so that I can force myself to partake in an environment I feel completely foreign in.

  18. Valeria January 17, 2018 at 5:49 am #

    Are all costumes fair game? Because I would probably dress up as Khalessi haha.

  19. Michael Howard January 17, 2018 at 2:43 pm #

    Love fun runs

  20. Alan M January 17, 2018 at 7:00 pm #

    Time to get my butt in gear.

  21. Becca January 18, 2018 at 2:37 pm #

    Those cajun tots are worth bearing a run on the worst day of the year for!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Rebecca January 18, 2018 at 2:38 pm #

    Cajun tots are reason enough to run!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Aurelia January 18, 2018 at 3:24 pm #

    I’ve done the ride, so it must be time for the run!

  24. Shannon Milliman January 18, 2018 at 4:46 pm #

    I’m getting in shape. Bring it on!

  25. Danielle C January 18, 2018 at 7:56 pm #

    Since October 2016, I’ve lost about 110 lbs, and in the fall of 2017 I ran my first official 5K and it felt great! It was a huge accomplishment and a milestone that I had my eyes on for a long time. Since then though, I’ve hidden in the warmth of the gym on a boring old treadmill that squeaks and whines with every step. Winning entry into this awesome 5K will motivate me to get out and breathe in the crisp Oregon air and bask in the frigid glory of a runner’s high. It will be cold and it will be worth it!

  26. Becky P January 23, 2018 at 12:23 pm #

    I would love to run this!!

  27. Bridget January 23, 2018 at 1:04 pm #

    A hopeful winner’s haiku

    Self inflicted pain
    Cold, wet Portland Winter rain
    Ok fine, I’m game

  28. Eva Wickilffe January 23, 2018 at 1:33 pm #

    Who doesn’t love the idea of running in terrible, gloomy weather, right? All the additional stuff, like tasty soup is appreciated too, of course. I’d really love to be given this opportunity.

  29. diana January 23, 2018 at 4:21 pm #

    This sounds pretty neat

  30. Courtney January 25, 2018 at 3:29 pm #

    I have been looking for the next run to run.

  31. BENJAMIN LARSEN January 25, 2018 at 4:58 pm #

    We’ve been looking for some fun exercise! Please and thank you?!

  32. david January 26, 2018 at 9:51 am #

    would love to run in this again. the soup at the finish line is a swell touch, and i’d love to drag along a running partner to share in the worst day magic:)

  33. Sydney January 26, 2018 at 1:26 pm #

    need something fun to get me out of my winter slump!

  34. Alan M January 27, 2018 at 12:51 pm #

    Pick me. Got to figure out who wants to run with me.

  35. Hayley January 27, 2018 at 10:02 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets to this so my friend and I can suffer together hahaha :-)

  36. Elisa January 28, 2018 at 9:38 am #

    Sounds like fun! Count on us grumpy cats to be there if we win!

  37. Brittany mason January 28, 2018 at 2:58 pm #

    My husband and I just moved to the city a few months ago and would love to jump into community events. It’s a great way to fall in love with your new home when you’re running through it!

  38. Sarah Crawford January 28, 2018 at 5:18 pm #

    I’d like tickets so I can kickstart my running season!

  39. Teresa B January 29, 2018 at 11:24 am #

    Looks like a blast! Who wouldn’t want to run on the worst day of the year with thousands of other runners, plus it supports a great cause at a great venue!!
