OCTOBER 19, 2019 IS THE 11TH ANNUAL REGATTA RUN
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
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 are planning on reverting back to our previous course route since Cook Park’s sewer construction is supposed to be done by October. The route starts in Tualatin Community Park, past the dog park, over the foot bridge, turns around in Cook Park, and back.

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 is also an interview John did with Dale & Claudia Lembke about their son, Matthew Lembke.
