About This Activity

Note there is no Day of Race registration.

The 8th Annual Twilight 5km Run/Walk & Twilight Kids Mile will be held on Saturday, June 25th, 2016 in conjunction with the Tigard Festival of Balloons in beautiful Cook Park, Tigard. The Twilight Mile will begin at 6:30pm and the Twilight 5K will start at 7pm. 

The Twilight Kids Mile is fun untimed kids' run and the t-shirts will be available in child sizing only. 

The 5K Twilight Run follows a flat and fast course along the beautiful bike trails. As you race towards the sunset, you will be surrounded by the wonders of the park and excitement of the Festival of Balloons. After you cross the finish line, join the Awards Party for light food and beverages while we announce awards for age group winners and winners of raffle packets. All finishers receive a ribbon, and the age group winners receive medals.

Following the Awards Party and Raffle Prize Drawings you can enjoy the fun of the Balloon Festival - carnival rides, tasty food offerings and drinks from local restaurants and breweries, live music and dancing. As darkness falls be mesmerized by the beauty and size of the hot air balloons as they are inflated and lit for the evening's Night Glow event. 

Please note that dogs are not allowed to be on either the Twilight 5km or the Twilight Kids Mile course or the Balloon Festival grounds.
