Independence Day

July 4th, 2019. You’re now free to move about hop country. This new Fourth of July race is a sure winner. Join us for a half marathon, 5K or 10K romp through beautiful Champoeg State Park, the perfect setting to celebrate our national pastime of working hard and partying in equal measure.

Bridge of the Goddess

September 14th, 2019. 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.

Newport Bay to Brews

2019 Date TBD. 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.
