Little Lostine Oregon

July 2nd, 2016 marks the 33rd Annual Lostine River Run in Wallowa County. If you've never spent time in the Wallowa mountains and surrounding area, you are in for a real treat, as Lostine is a scenic farming town nestled between Wallowa and Enterprise in the Wallowa Valley. The town's population is just a little over 200, which is just about the number of race participants the Lostine River Run hosts each year---meaning, the number of people in town doubles in one weekend!

Participants of the run can choose to run either a 5K or 10K that is mostly downhill as it follows the Lostine River into the small town of Lostine, or a flat 1 mile out-and-back. This course is chip-timed and awards will be given to overall winners and top masters in the 5k and 10k runs. Medals will also be given to the top 5 finishers in each age group in each run/walk. For more information on the course routes, please visit this website.

Where: Race central begins at the old Lostine School at 723 College St., Lostine. Find directions here. Lostine is about a 5.5 mile drive east of Portland on I-84.
