Sean’s Run for ARROAutism is an annual fundraising 5K run/walk and 10K run to benefit Autism Research and Resources of Oregon (ARROAutism).
We also often hold a special Kids Fun Run, and organize events and exhibitions to entertain and inform spectators during and after the run. A limited amount of food and water is provided, generally through donations from a variety of sources, and available for free, with donations greatly appreciated.
The first Sean’s Run was held in 2007, and the run occurs again, rain or shine, with entry fees and sponsorship benefiting Autism Research and Research of Oregon.
Eagle Creek Fire
This year's Sean's Run will be held in the Historic Columbia Gorge, with the starting location at the Bridge of The Gods Trailhead in Cascade Locks, Oregon. Last year we obtained a special permit from the State Parks Department to temporarily open and use the trail for our event, which was otherwise closed to the public due ongoing repairs from the Eagle Creek Fire. We do not anticipate similar restrictions this year, but the fire damage was extensive, and work continues to restore the area after the fire. We will post updates on social media, and send periodic email updates to keep you informed as the event draws closer.
PLEASE UPDATE THE ADDRESS IN YOUR CALENDARS, GPS, ACTIVITY TRACKERS, ETC!
Start Time and Course Map
Registration opens at 8am. Race starts at 9am.
We will provide an updated course map and provide trail information just as soon as possible to allow you to plan your times and footwear accordingly. Also, since we are holding the event in the Gorge, we are also moving the registration time to 08:00 AM and starting the run at 09:00 AM. This will ensure that people have sufficient time to find the trailhead.
Aid stations will be set up at multiple locations.Aid stations will be set up at multiple locations.
There is no dedicated parking. That said, parking is available a short walk away from the registration and start/finish lines, mostly along SW Wanapa St, Cascade Locks, OR 97014.
Your participation in Sean's Run is a great way to learn more about Autism, and the money you help us raise is used for various ARROAutism projects, including the ARROAutism Family Holiday Assistance Project, which helps hundreds of Autism families in need every Christmas holiday season. Other ways of supporting ARROAutism include making direct donations, and purchasing Seans Run Apparel, participating in day of events, and joining in other ARROAutism functions, like the Evening for Autism and Rock for Autism
