Soles2Souls 5K/10K Run & Walk and Kids’ Fun Run
Soles2Souls 2015 in the books!
Thanks to everyone who braved the chilly weather for a fun race morning.
You made it such a great day…and raised about $4,000 for our track & field team!
Results are up on the Uberthons site, and the professional photos from Jennie Borello Photography are available for you to view, download and share here. Additional photos are available on ourFacebook page.
The participant survey is available here…any feedback or suggestions you have are welcome!
This will be the fourth year of this event. We are a small, affordable ($12.50/$7.50), chip-timed race focused on creating a fun and welcoming atmosphere for runners of all ages and abilities. We wanted to have a race that both our school families and local community families could enjoy together without breaking the bank. Both the 5k and 10k courses follow the Fanno Creek Trail, a paved path protected by parks and green space…very family friendly for both runners and walkers. The course also incorporates the neighboring business parks.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Healthy Kids Program at West Hills Christian School, located near Multnomah Village in Portland, Oregon. The Healthy Kids Program supports the whole healthy child – body, mind and spirit – by way of our PE, sports, Presidential Fitness testing, and other like programs. This year the funds raised will specifically go to benefit the West Hills Christian School track and field team.
Whether you are new to running, a seasoned road racer, walking as part of a more active lifestyle or using the baby jogger to be active as a family, come and join us!

There is ample parking in the school parking lot and surrounding neighborhood. The start line is by the playground.
Each mile will be marked with a sign for both the 5K and 10K. Signage and volunteers will be at all intersections directing you as required. View the course map here. The 10K course is a double loop of the 5K.
Aid Stations & Restrooms
There will be one aid station on the course. 5K participants will see it at the 1.5 mile mark and 10K participants will see it at the 1.5/4.5 mile marks. Water will be provided at the aid station.
Port-a-potties will be available near the start/finish line. We cannot guarantee restroom facilities on the course.
The Fanno Creek Trail is shared by runners, pedestrians and cyclists. We ask that you only run two abreast, call out when you are about to pass someone (“Passing on the left”), and only pass on the left hand side. For the safety of others on the course, we ask that you leave four-footed runners at home. Headphones are allowed, but please use caution and remain attentive to your surroundings. No littering please.
We welcome the use of strollers – families are invited to run together – but we encourage you to line up at the back of the pack to ease congestion. Younger participants who are completing the race on their own leg power need to be registered and paid for; however, there is no need to register those riding in a stroller or being held in an infant carrier (for walkers). Please do help your young ones to be considerate on the narrower parts of the route for the other participants.
Our event is chip-timed by Uberthons. Race results will be available on our website following the event. We will be providing awards for overall winners and age group winners, as well as raffle prizes to random bib numbers. Everyone’s got a shot at a prize! Last year’s results are available here.
Soles2Souls is perhaps best known for our team of capable, cheerful volunteers! We need help from plenty of people to ensure this event is successful. If you are interested in volunteering, please click here to sign up!
