Registration for the 2019 Rose City Relay closes on May 31!

There is not time to race if you haven’t registered for Terrapin Events’ Rose City Relay on Saturday, June 29th. This event is new-ish to the one-day relay scene, but it is sure action packed! There are two options – a 68 mile running option and a 47 mile walking option. Both races start and finish at Level Beer (on the Columbia River and NE 148th St). The running relay course has some absolutely iconic routes:

  • Beautiful views of the Columbia Gorge
  • Run through downtown Troutdale
  • Run along the Columbia River on Marine Drive
  • Run through Smith and Bybee wildlife refuge
  • Run through Chimney and  Pier Parks
  • Run through St. Johns
  • Run over St. John’s Bridge
  • Run on the esplanade along the Willamette River
  • Run over Hawthorne Bridge
  • Run along the Springwater Corridor
  • Run through Oaks bottom park
  • Run past Powell Butte park
  • Beautiful views of Mt. Hood

Teams can go from 1-6 members and must finish within 14 hours of their start. Waves start from 6-11am and the after-party at Level will go from 7-10pm. On June 28th, there will be a team captain’s gathering, as well as a van decorating party, so keep that on your list as well. If you’re still looking to join a team, or want to fill up a team, you can fill out this form on the Terrapin website for both.
