WELCOME TO OUR THIRD ANNUAL
PORTLAND, OREGON RACE TO STOP GLOBAL WARMING!
The Portland race ended on 4/28/2002.
Over 1,000 Racers Discover The Perfect Metaphor for Global Warming
April 28, 2002 - On a chilly but dry morning, over 1,000 racers came to the
Oregon Zoo to run and walk in our 3rd Annual Race to Stop Global Warming.
Miss America 2002, Katie Harmon, FOX 49 Meteorologist Mark Nelsen, and 3-time
NY City Marathon Winner Alberto Salazar, were at the start line to share the importance
of protecting the environment with all who participated.
Racers quickly learned why the course is the perfect metaphor for the issue
of addressing global warming, and why it is quickly becoming the premier 8k course
in Portland. It's tough and challenging, full of curves and hills. It requires
fortitude and creativity, but is also breathtakingly beautiful.
Participants wound their way into the Oregon Zoo, finishing at the concert
lawn. Upon reaching their destination, they were the first to enjoy the Bonneville
Power Administration's Earth Day Expo, including fine music, interactive exhibits
and the Nature's Food Table.
Alberto Salazar and Katie Harmon also led the free Children's fun run, toddler
trot and diaper dash.
Our overall male winner was Steve Andersen with a time of 27:46, and our overall
female winner was Deanna O'Neil with a time of 31:32.
Congratulations to all who finished!
