Portland Pre-Super Bowl Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) or 10 km. (6.2 miles), both rated easy.
The 5 km. walk explores Portland's Alberta District with its quaint shops and eateries, then goes through some older neighborhoods. The 10 km. walk continues on through historic districts of older Portland.
Carpools will form at the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield, at 8 a.m. and return there about 4:30 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $10 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably choose a restaurant in Portland to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
People traveling to Portland on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 10:15 a.m. at the registration/start point, McMenamin's Kennedy School at 5736 NE 33rd Avenue in Portland. Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting from Kennedy School anytime between 9 a.m. and noon.
