Hey Gaye! Yes, let's meet at the Shuttle location (Salmon side of the Heathman Hotel) between 7:30 and 8. That way, we can catch the 8 a.m. shuttle up to the start, and head on from there.

Not looking forward to the rain either, but hopefully it won't be like it was last year! Heading to get our packets this evening (just got back from the coast).

See everyone in the morning! Call or message me if you need anything - including my cell number.

I took a late lunch today and headed to the Hilton to pick up my bib and t-shirt. I am so ready, but not for the rain. Keeping my fingers crossed for a dry morning.

So, are us walkers going to meet at the Heathman and take the bus over. I'm excited to meet some new Spark friends!

I'm all for meeting up at the Heathman and taking the bus over with the other walkers. I'm curious who's running as I'd like to cheer you on. I'm open for anything afterwards. I'll be taking Max into town.

I just read back over my last post and realize I didn't set a time for meeting up. Sorry!

I was thinking around 12, which would give everyone time to finish the 10K walk and time to get downtown if they want. Parking garages are available near the SW waterfront, which would allow for easy access to walk through Tom McCall park to get to the meet-up spot.

Sarah I'll send you a message with my number. It's great that you'll be playing! I can't speak for everyone but we should still be around once you're done. Or maybe we'll stroll on up to see you!

So glad to have you back Sarah. I remember when you were there 2 years ago. Any idea what time you will be playing? Is it like 11-1?

Hi everyone! So I've been out of the loop for awhile, but I'm back sparking again and doing great! I would love to join the meet-up group, but my band is playing during the marathon.. I think at 11am at the firehouse near the finish. We play right along Naito. Is there someone in that will have a cell phone? I am willing to share my number if someone is willing to text me and let me know what's going on! That way you can either come find me, or I can come find you when I'm finished. I think we play a 2-hr set... So that puts me available about 1pm?

Thanks!
Sarah

We're getting close!

Packets:
Packet pick-up at the Portland Hilton on Friday during Expo Hours 11:00 am to 8:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am to 7:00 pm. NO DAY OF RACE ENTRY OR PACKET PICKUP POSSIBLE. Shirts for all who pick up their packet.

Date: Sunday, 9 October 2011
Time: Anytime between 8:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M.
Place: N. Willamette Blvd. at N. Woolsey, across from Columbia Park Annex.

The organizers provide a shuttle up to the starting line for the 10K.
Transportation:
For those Walkers who choose to park downtown near the finish area and then ride our shuttle buses to the start, they will begin running from the Salmon side of the Heathman Hotel (between Broadway and Park) at 7:30 a.m. The buses will continue to run until approx. 12 Noon to also transport walk finishers, who parked at the start area, back to their vehicles.
emoticon emoticon

Let's meet at the Shuttle location (Salmon side of the Heathman Hotel) between 7:30 and 8. Will that work for everyone who's attending? Let me know if you need a later meeting/starting time please.

Because downtown is going to be swamped with Marathon activity, you may find it easier to get downtown by using TriMet. We'll be taking Max in, and it's a short jaunt to the shuttle pick-up area.

For those folks who want to meet up AFTER the 10K - let's shoot for SW Jefferson and SW Naito Parkway. This is Tom McCall Park, in a little pavered area along the on-ramp of the Hawthorne Bridge. That way, it's close enough to the Marathon activities, without being in the midst of all the people. We'll have the option of staying put and visiting and chatting, and/or wandering over to cheer on those people who are finishing their run or walk.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? RSVPs?

Yay Gaye! I'm hoping it won't be raining as it did last year LOL Some of us are kicking around the idea of the Hot Buttered Run and the Jingle Bell up in the Events thread.

Just a quick head's up, gang. Registration for the 10K walk during the marathon ends on Sept. 20. If you won't be doing the 10K but want to attend the meet-up, stay tuned for more details coming soon.

Oh, absolutely Chuck! I'm sorry if I didn't say that very well.

Yes, we'll meet up all together before the start, so we can rock this 10K as a herd!

For those who aren't walking with us, we will also gather after for a meet'n'greet type deal-i-o!

If we are going to participate I would hope to meet before the "Start" and after the "Finish"
I always arrive about 1 to 2 hours before an event. Thanks Candy for putting this together.

STUFFNEARTABOR, yes'm, will do. I'm thinking gathering after will make the most sense, as before would be too early!

Yay Chaz! emoticon I can't believe it's been almost 3 months already.

Crystal emoticon it'd be great to have you with us. If not, then hopefully we'll have another event organized soon for other opportunities.

Even though we'll be moving into our rainy season (hard to believe with this heat lately, yea??) I think we should shoot for some kind of monthly gathering and/or walk/hike, etc.

I'd be happy to meet up before or after. But I walk this much almost daily & for free - so I'll pass on the pay-to-walk event. Please let me know how the before or after plans get fleshed out, I'd love to meet some of our team members!

This looks like fun. A great walk but non-competitive. I like competition. I will look at my schedule and see what I can do to attend.

Hooray! You ladies are awesome!

Joelley23, I absolutley understand! Hopefully we can organize enough to rally and gather before and/or after the walk, so if you can't do the 10K, you can still meet up with everyone and put faces and voices to names and posts.

The Portland Marathon is celebrating its 40th year! October 9, people from all over the world will be running the Half and Full Marathon. The organizers have also, for the last 28 years, put on the Mayor's Walk, aka 10K Family Walk.

You can read about the Mayor's/Family Walk here:
www.portlandmarathon.org/even

I blogged about my expierence last year - it was fabulous, even if it was the rainiest Portland Marathon EVER!

I think it would be great if we, the SparkPortland team, could get some of our members together, and walk this 10K (6.2 miles) together! We'll have some members running the Half or Full Marathon I'm sure, so it would be a great opportunity to cheer these people on as well.

Interested in it right now? Register here!

?EVENT_ID=1979903&CHECKSSO=0


Need time to think about it? That's perfectly understandable. If you have questions, or concerns about the cost of registering, PLEASE please contact me and we will work something out.

Registration is limited tothe first 500 people, and I've already taken up two slots by registering myself and Bill LOL
emoticon

The first shuttle will leave the starting area at 8 a.m. We can meet at the shuttle buses at that time, and head for the 10K starting area. If some people would like to start later, we can organize a later meet-up for 9:00 or 10:00. Fast or slow, we can walk together and enjoy the thrill of the last six miles of the race.

That's as fully formed as my idea has gotten at this time. I can envision regrouping after we finish the 10K, cheering on Half and Full Marathon runners, getting together for pictures and hugs and high-fives and having a get-to-know-you better good time! We can flesh out the details as we figure out how many people will be participating.

Think it over, and let me know?
