There are many races in the Portland area that center around beer or at least will give you a beer in the end. The Oregon Brewery Running Series is a prime example of this. There are much fewer races centering around cider, so for Oregon Cider Week in June, OBRS has added another run at Portland Cider Company to their summer schedule for June 24th. Check-in for the race starts around 10:30am. You can pick up your bib, your shirt if you ordered one, and get ready for the start.
The course takes you on sidewalks through a neighborhood, along 82nd St, through a green space, and past the Oregon Military Museum at Camp Withycombe before coming back to Portland Cider. As with all OBRS races, the race course is not closed (follow traffic rules!), is well marked and staffed with volunteers, will be around a 3mile to 5k distance, and will have no race clock. There is no bag check, and the race takes place in any weather, so please plan accordingly. After the run, enjoy your free drink (pint of cider for those 21+ with valid ID, non-alcoholic options also available), and stick around for the raffle.
