The Start

Student runners must report to the holding area at the WHS studium parking lot 15 minutes before the start of their race. Runners will be lead in a group warm up at the starting area. Parents will be in the stadium grandstands to cheer on finishers.

The Course

The student courses will wind along the paths around Washougal High and Gause Elementary. High school athletes will jog with the young runners to help guide and encourage them. There will also be plenty of adult volunteers along the route for safety and support. The 5K events wind through Washougal neighborhoods.

The Finish

Each run will finish at the WHS stadium. Runners will be greeted by a cheering crowd, a bottle of water and a medal for their achievement. Elementary students will wait in a secured holding area for adult pick up.

Help Make a Difference in Washougal Public Education

Proceeds from The Student Stride for Education provide exciting educational opportunities for Washougal students via teacher grants from the Washougal Schools Foundation. These grants fund programs and projects that otherwise would not be available. Runner fees cover event costs, so our wonderful donors and business sponsors provide the real fund raising power of this event.
