Register Now for the 2021 Regatta Run!

Saturday, October 16, 2021

Organized by: Tualatin Rotary Regatta Run Team

What & When

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 event has been a fundraiser for the Cpl. Matthew Lembke Scholarship Fund for the last 12 years at Tualatin High School. We are happy to announce that the Regatta Run will continue, hosted now by the Tualatin Rotary Club, whose fundraising efforts will support Tualatin youth through scholarships and community programs.


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 was created in his name. Now that the Tualatin Rotary will be hosting the Regatta Run, the fundraising will be in support of Tualatin Rotary’s first-generation college scholarship fund and other youth-focused community programs.


FOR PAST EVENTS: 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 in the past.  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
