Our 41st Annual AVS 5k Run, the oldest professional Society run on our planet, will be held with our AVS 69th International Symposium & Exhibition in Portland, Oregon. The start and finish are within walking distance of the Oregon Convention Center. With your entry fee, you will receive a run t-shirt, race number, and awards.
The race will be held on Wednesday morning at a time that will allow runners to make the first sessions. Stop by the race registration booth by Tuesday, November 7th to pick up your t-shirt and number, a map of the course, and find organizational details for Wednesday morning. The awards ceremony will be held at the Run registration area on Wednesday at noon.
Don’t forget to put together a team to compete in our CORPORATE RACE and DIVISIONS AND GROUPS RACE. Each team representing a corporate entity (university, unemployed, research organization, manufacturer, etc.) or Division/Group must have at least 3 team members to qualify.
Times are handicapped by age and sex.* To enter your team, please email your roster, team name, and affiliation to the Race Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) before noon on Tuesday, November 7, 2023. Please make sure each team member has registered for the race.
*While we do not currently have qualifying standards for non-binary athletes, we are working on ways non-binary participants are accepted into the event. Discussions are ongoing with non-binary attendees, in an effort to further promote inclusion at all AVS events.
Please note that we assign t-shirts in the order in which race registrations are received. Those who register before September 11, 2023, are guaranteed to receive their desired size so please be sure to register ASAP!
