Special thanks to John Erickson at k103.3fm for his support of the Regatta Run. Not only did he MC the event, he shared the story on the “Tell Me Something Good” segment (toward the end of the segment), HERE
Here is also an interview John did with Dale & Claudia Lembke about their son, Matthew Lembke.
The Regatta Run is held in conjunction with theWest 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 had to make a small adjustment due to Cook Park being closed to events due to sewer construction. This year’s route starts in Tualatin Community Park, past the dog park, over the foot bridge, turns around before shelter 4, and back. There is a little hill in this new route, but not a big one.
