SAVE THE DATE! The 12th Annual Regatta Run will be 10/17/2020
COVID-19 UPDATE: While we are closely monitoring the situation with the Coronavirus, we are postponing the sponsorship drive for now until we gain a greater clarity for what might exist in the fall. The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, sponsors, and others present on race day is our utmost concern. If we can safely have our run, we most definitely will. We just wanted to be transparent about this unprecedented situation. We’ll keep you posted. (3/26/2020)
Thank you for another great event in 2019!
We had 480 people registered and 360 who finished/got times! The weather affected participation, but we still made it! Thanks to all of you who braved the elements and joined us for a fun, fall day!

The Regatta Run is held in conjunction with the West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta. This is always held on the 3rd Saturday in October. This year, October 17, 2020 will be our 12th Annual Regatta Run, a 5K Run/Walk that raises money for the Cpl. Matthew Lembke Scholarship Fund at Tualatin High School. This is a fun Saturday for the whole family.
The race was created in honor of Corporal Matthew Lembke, who lost his life from wounds sustained on his third tour of duty- this one in Afghanistan, June 2009. To celebrate Matt’s character and service, a scholarship fund has been created in his name. 100% of the proceeds from the Regatta Run go into the scholarship fund.
The start and finish line is at Tualatin Community Park. The course is mostly flat, fast, and friendly. We will have the same route as last year, as Cook Park’s sewer construction is underway. The route starts in Tualatin Community Park, past the dog park, over the foot bridge, turns around at shelter #4 before Cook Park, and back.
Special thank you to Jennifer and Mike Harris of Freeze Frame Photography for donating their services. Event photos from past Regatta Runs can be downloaded for free on their website ffphotog.com
