Conquering Washington County’s Playground: The Earthlete Oregon Race Unleashes the Ultimate Test of Endurance and Adventure

Earthlete Oregon is the newest adventure to delight the Oregon outdoors scene.  Bringing their event from a two year span in Hawai’i, the Earthlete team is known for immersing participants in the beauty of natural environments just as they say in their slogan: MOVE WITH NATURE. The team does warn: this is not a normal race. 

Earthlete’s mission is to get people to traverse the terrain of all types of environments, which is why they offer a trail run up to a more involved multi-sport course.  There are three options available, depending on your adventure level:

  • TREK: trail run 
  • ROAM: standup paddle – trail run – mountain bike
  • QUEST: standup paddle – swim – trail run – mountain bike

So why is Earthlete Oregon not a normal race?  

Well, in order to complete the course, they’ll give you a passport that you must stamp at each checkpoint along the way!  They don’t do race bibs, you’ll get a buff instead. They also require that you carry your own water/snacks just like you would on a typical long adventure. However, they will provide water at the start/finish. And one amazing option for those that don’t have any equipment is that they will provide you with a mountain bike and/or a standup paddle board if you don’t have one!  Just choose the option at registration and they’ll bring it for you!

If you are looking for a new adventure, Earthlete Oregon is for you!
