The Regatta Run/Walk is a Tualatin Tradition. It is a collaborative effort, serving to honor and remember Marine Corporal Matthew Lembke, a 2005 Tualatin High School graduate who lost his life after being critically injured in Afghanistan. 100% of the proceeds from this event go to a scholarship fund in Matt's name.
The course is fast, flat, and friendly. It starts at Tualatin Community Park, 8515 SW Tualatin Road, goes along the beautifully scenic trails, over the footbridge, to Cook Park, and back along the same route. Breathe in the fresh air as you run or walk alongside the trees in their fall color splendor, cheered on by Tualatin High School's Cheerleaders and Dance team.
Best feel-good event ever!
