Instant Gratification Run

Astoria Parks and Recreation along with the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association are sponsoring its 3rd annual Instant Gratification, Zero K All Fun Run
No Running – No Training
You read that correctly. It’s zero k. Zero as using as few muscles as possible. So why call it a fun run? We all know that the best part of a race is the finish line: t-shirts, and the post-race festivities.
The money raised will help fund Astoria Parks’ fun runs and health and wellness programs that were cut at the beginning of the year. Our slogan is:
“We don’t run so you can!”
The cost is $25. Runners will receive a t-shirt, beverages, plenty of water, food, and an award ceremony. The Zero K Run will take place on October 8th at 3:30pm and the start and finish line will take place at the Riverwalk/Baked Alaska Annex.
