Stride Race Map


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


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.

The Kitty Dash

The Kitty Dash is a FREE event open to kids five and under. And parents are welcome to run along! Sign up the morning of The Stride to walk or run one lap around the track and cross the finish line just like the big kids! It is the last run of the day. No pre-registration required. Participants will receive an official Kitty Dash runner bib, a finish line ribbon and, of course, a well-earned bottle of water!
Stride shirts are optional and can be pre-purchased for $10 until April 29, 2022.

Beat the Docs

Back again, how about a little fun and friendly competition during The Stride’s 5K run… Doctors Dave and Tom Stinchfield of Discovery Dental are challenging runners to beat them across the finish line! Everyone who is able to Beat the Docs will get a special award from our title sponsor!
Remember, you have to finish before all three of them, but they will be easy to spot with giant targets on the backs of their shirts. Be warned, they are fast!

Ninja Warrior Course

Test your skills on this fun obstacle course!
Anyone can participate in this obstacle course created by Washougal River Crossfit. It’s a fun challenge for runners and non-runners, little brothers or sisters and grandparents too!

The Unified Fun Run

The Unified Stride promotes social inclusion through shared experiences with those in our community.

This 2K fun run joins people with and without disabilities in their pursuit of a common goal…to attain the sense of accomplishment that comes with crossing the finish line while celebrating with friends!
