Race for the Roses 2016 will be on Sunday, April 17, 2016 at the Oregon Convention Center!

Great local race. Even better cause. Treat yourself and give back to the community at Albertina Kerr’s Race for the Roses Half Marathon, 10K and 5K Races!

Hang out inside the warm, dry Oregon Convention Center before setting out on fast (frequent PRs!)and accurate courses over bridges, along the waterfront and through the heart of downtown Portland.

You'll receive a unique finishers medal created by Albertina Kerr's Port City program, celebratory champagne mimosas, a finisher's rose and a commemorative event photo.  Plus you'll be strengthening Oregon families and communities. Your race fees go to Albertina Kerr, helping children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges, empowering them to live richer lives.

Did you know that:


  • 100% of the net proceeds raised benefit a local non-profit that has been serving the community for more than 100 years.

  • By racing this year, you have helped children, adults and families living with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges.
