2017 Regatta Run Update: What an AMAZING RACE (DAY)!

THANK YOU for an AMAZING turnout at this year’s Regatta Run.  We had our largest number of registrations ever- 534! Plus, we had probably 100, maybe more, volunteers- including sponsors, Tualatin FBLA, Dance Team, Cheerleaders, Cross Country, Crimsonnaires, and a host of many other TUHS volunteers. Also, a huge thank you to the Marine Cadets– you are nothing short of amazing, and I can’t thank you enough for getting in there and doing everything we needed help with and more! You guys will make great Marines someday! Thank you to Tualatin High School, Integrity Staffing, the City of Tualatin, John Erickson, from K103.3 iHeart Radio, Freeze Frame Photography, Fit City Tualatin and the Chamber of Commerce, the VFW Post 3452, Katie and Adam Jakobsen, Club Sport, Therapeutic Associates, Orange Theory Fitness, Edward Jones, Cafe Yumm, Tualatin Dental Care, Max Muscle, Firehouse Subs, and Debbie Dehler for braving the elements along with all of the participants who came out to honor and remember Matt.

What, When
Mark your calendar and reserve the date of Saturday, October 21, 2017 for the 9th annual Regatta Run, a 5K Run/Walk that raises money for the Cpl. Matthew Lembke Scholarship Fund at Tualatin High School. Held in conjunction with the West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta, 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.

Regatta Run, the course

The start and finish line is at Tualatin Community Park. The course is flat, fast, and friendly. It goes from Tualatin Community Park, past the dog park, over the foot bridge, to Cook Park and back.
