Course Description

Loop course: Our race will be a ~1.5-mile loop course run located at Linfield University’s wellness trail. It is a mostly dirt/bark dust trail. The start/finish and aid station will be located just off SE Lever Street on Wildcat Circle (in google maps, it is the parking lot to the SE of the Linfield College Nicholson Library). There are plenty of areas for runners to set up their own aid stations or chairs along the course, and access to vehicles is very close.

What shoes should I wear? The trail is not very technical, with just a few tree roots; road shoes work best in dry conditions. If conditions are wet and muddy, trail shoes might be a better option.

Aid Station

We will have a basic aid station containing water, electrolyte drink, soda, and food such as fruit, chips, cookies, and PB& J sandwiches. Runners are free to have items placed at the aid station or set up their own aid stations in areas along the course. We are a cupless race, so you must bring your own cup for drinks from the aid station. Participants are never further than 1.5 miles from an aid station at a given time (only 3/4 of a mile if you’re willing to go backward).


Each runner will receive a T-shirt and other special swag with their race entry. We also will be hosting a costume contest, so wear your most out-of-this-world costume!
