New Year’s 1.5 Mile Run/Walk & 5k Run/Walk
Looking for New Year’s plans still? Don’t worry, Hotel Modera‘s got you covered. Whether you are looking to do something casual, something crazy, or something glamorous, Hotel Modera’s got the details on Portland’s top New Year’s events.
2012 First Run
When: 10pm, Saturday, December 31st, 2011
Where: World Trade Center
Address: 121 SW Salmon St # 1350, Portland, OR 97204
The Party begins at 10pm. Run and walk begin at midnight. It’s a Tradition! Make it yours! The First Run & Walk will start at the stroke of Midnight. What better way to bring in the New Year than to celebrate with hundreds of your family, friends, and neighbors. Enjoy a fitness run and walk along with a celebration of food, beverage (non-alcoholic), music, dancing, and fun!
DISTANCES: 5K and 1.5-mile Run & Walk (1.5-mile event will be timed, but is a non-competitive event)
The challenge continues…..even if you have enjoyed the First Run at the stroke of midnight, we invite you back to the World Trade center for the Twenty12 Resolution Run & Walk. You’ve made that Resolution…now live up to it!
* NOTE: Participants competing in both events will receive a commemorative award.
Helium Comedy Club
When: 8pm & 10:30pm, Saturday, December 31st, 2011
Where: Helium Comedy Club
Address: 1510 SE 9th Ave, Portland, OR 97214
Catch Al Madrigal’s first-rate standup at Helium on New Year’s–choose from the early show (8pm) or the late show (10:30pm), pay just $25 to $45. Don’t dress up–this is one of the few Portland NYE events that specifically encourages you to go in casual wear. Check Helium’s site for details on the shows–the early show price includes a free ticket for a future show, appetizers, and comedy … the late show adds on party favors, a Champagne toast at midnight, and dessert to the mix. Budget extra for drinks, and be ready for a raucous night of laughs!
