The race is a fundraiser for the Oregon City High School track and field team, and team members will be volunteering. Many high school runners also take part in the race itself, so expect to see some speedy athletes sloshing along the course! The farm remains open to the public during the race, so while runners are enjoying the bright fields of tulips they can expect some cheers from the other guests.
With its unique and varied course, enthusiastic staff, and fun atmosphere, this was one of my favorite races last year.
