Local, handcrafted events.

Volcano Half

Because you lava challenge…. You’ll find our idyllic river valley erupting with greens and blooms along this very runnable new course from Willamette Mission to Volcanoes Stadium in Keizer. Fully-appointed after-party with band, food, and festivities awaits.

Independence Day

You’re now free to move about hop country. This new Fourth of July race is a sure winner. Join us for a gritty off-road 5K or 10K romp through Rogue’s hop farms in Independence, Oregon, the perfect setting to celebrate our national pastime of working hard and partying in equal measure.

Bridge of the Goddess

Give the goddess in your life special treatment for a day. Gorge-ous course departs from the deck of Bridge of the Gods and spirits you away from it all on the historic Columbia River Highway Trail. If the inclines don’t take your breath away, the views from on high surely will. Supported and safe course is a great training run for fall marathons or a destination unto itself.

Bay to Brews

Raise a toast to the best of our Oregon coast! Drink in the scenery on one or two loops through lush forest and alongside breeze-tousled waters of Yaquina Bay. Home base for Bay to Brews is Rogue Ales under the iconic Newport Bay Bridge, where we’ll join the Ben Rice Band and Mo’s Famous Chowder for post-race fun.

PRC 5K Series

Never let winter win. Keep those wheels turning and the fire burning all winter long when you join in our seasonal 5K series. This low-key, high-yield trio of races culminates with a prediction run/walk. Your progress might surprise you! $25 for one 5K, $60 for all three. Hot coffee and pancakes for all and homemade treats for the winners.
