Register today for the Rose Festival Half Marathon, expanding into the Portland metro region and charting new territory for greater Portland racers. The race will begin at Southridge High School in Beaverton, Oregon. The route — still in final development — will take runners to familiar Beaverton arteries (and through a popular wetlands park) as they dash along a unique mix of modern urban landscaping and ancient natural areas.

The Prized Centerpiece of the Rose Festival
A cherished highlight of the Portland Rose Festival, the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade is a popular procession that is more than a spectacular floral-filled parade; it’s a beloved annual tradition. For more than 100 years, Portland families, visitors and community groups come together to celebrate what makes Portland a great place to live and visit. A colorful reflection of local, regional and international communities, the parade draws hundreds of thousands of cheering viewers of every age, along a 4.2 mile route that winds through city streets and across the river.
Plan to watch the parade in person at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 10, 2017 – reserved seats are available at Veterans Memorial Coliseum (http://www.rosefestival.org/buy/tickets), or watch the live television broadcast on FOX 12 Oregon!
