Here is the 2019 segment: K103 INTERVIEW with JOHN ERICKSON
It has been a tradition to raffle off hand-made quilts at the run. This year we have one quilt. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. Buy tickets at the quilt booth on race day! Drawing will be held after the run at the Awards Ceremony. Need not be present to win. Quilt handmade by Portland Resident Bonnie Kiltow. All proceeds go to the Semper Fi Fund.
The Regatta Run is held in conjunction with the West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta. This is always held on the 3rd Saturday in October. 2019 will be our 11th 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
