About This Activity

Doggie Dash is held every year at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland. The main registration tent is located in the park near the intersection of SW Naito Parkway and SW Pine St. (near the Battleship Oregon monument). Vendor booths and demonstration areas will stretch along the park from Pine St. to the Morrison Bridge.

There are two courses to choose from: The 1.5 mile "Doggie Dash Classic" route begins on SW Naito Parkway near Stark St. You'll proceed down a car-free Naito Parkway to the Salmon St. fountains, then turn north along the park's seawall, and return south on Naito Parkway.

The 2.5 mile "Bridge to Bridge" route is open to both walkers and runners. It uses the same starting and ending points as the 1.5 mile route, but takes Dashers over the Hawthorne Bridge, along the Eastbank Esplanade, over the Steel Bridge, and back to Waterfront Park. It's dog-friendly and features great views of the city.
