Additional Information on the Uplift Oregon 5K

The ASICS Uplift Oregon 5K is far from your ordinary 5K. Uplift Oregon 5K runners have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run on the same course, at the same time, as the world’s fastest marathoners, all of whom are competing for a world title. Because of the unique nature of the race, Uplift Oregon 5K runners must follow a handful of rules to participate:

  • You must be in the start corral by 6:00am. Due to international broadcast requirements, participants running late will not be able to start. A bib will be required to enter the start corral (bib must be picked up during Riverfront Festival hours - there is no race day pickup).

  • You must be able to run a 5K in 31 minutes (approximately 10min per mile). If you fall behind this pace, you will be stopped at the 4K mark in order to avoid disrupting the championship race. You will still be allowed to finish once all the championship runners have passed.
