PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Comedian Kevin Hart is headlining the Moda Center Friday night with his “What Now?” tour, but he is starting the day in a very Portland way, running a pop-up 5K.

Hart, Fox 12’s Andy Carson and the Nike+ Run Club are inviting Portland runners to join them at Waterfront Park Friday morning. The run will begin and end at the Bill Naito Legacy Fountain and will kick off at 7:34 a.m.

The run is open to runners of all levels and pace. Hart has been holding the impromptu runs at cities along his tour, as a way to support healthy living and inspire fans to get fit.

"For me it's about motivating people to do things they don't normally do, standing for something else. At the end of the day, I'm a comedian, but I love to live, I love to laugh and I think that's what's important. You can live. You can laugh," Hart told WGCL at a run in Atlanta in July.

Runners can register at Gonike.me/runwithhartpdx, and run organizers advise that check in starts 30 minutes before the run starts, and participants should arrive at least 10 minutes before the run starts or their spot could be given away to a walk-in.
