Race Preview: 2017 Les Schwab Tires Red, White, and Blues

The 4th annual Red, White, and Blues 10K has added a half marathon to the mix for 2017. This patriotic race is held in West Linn on July 1. Both distances start with a downhill on scenic country roads and views of the Tualatin River.  The half marathon will also enjoy views of the Willamette River. The 10K is described as “beautiful, peaceful, and fast.” Both races are point to point.

Parking and the race start will be at Willamette Christian Church in West Linn. Participants will park at the start and shuttles will return racers to their vehicles afterwards. The finish line and after party will be at Lil’ Cooperstown. The finish party will include live blues music, a free beer, coffee, water, and prizes from sponsors. There will also be vendors, food and drink, and a hot dog eating contest. A Kids’ Run and awards will be held at the finish location as well.

Participants who pre-register for this Hood to Coast Race Series event will receive a Nike Dri-Fit shirt. There will also be finisher’s medals and don’t forget that free beer! Be sure to dress in your best patriotic costume. You could win the costume contest.

Bring the whole family and enjoy a great race course with a festive celebration afterwards.
