Runners and walkers will gather to run around the golf course.  You will be running on packed gravel, so leave the strollers at home for this race.  5K participants will make 2 laps around the course, while 10K runners will run 4.  The course includes short rolling hills and amazing views of the Columbia River.

Afterwards racers will enjoy hot cocoa, cider, and coffee along with homemade soups and freshly baked bread from McMenamins.  Costume wearers will receive a free drink and could be a winner in the costume contest!

Register soon for this race and you’ll receive a free beanie or ear warmers from Columbia Sportswear. And don’t forget, the Worst Day of the Year Run supports the Portland Police Bureau’s Sunshine Division. So brave the elements and come on out for a great cause and a lot of fun!
