Saturday, February 1 at McMenamins Edgefield


Gear up and get out with thousands of fun-loving people on this costumed winter run. Laugh at the elements and gather for a delicious finish line party featuring great food and beverages.  Enjoy hot cider, cocoa and coffee, homemade soups and fresh baked bread from McMenamins…yum, yum, yummy!

Come in costume and earn a free beer or a deluxe hot chocolate.

REI’s Worst Day of the Year Run treks around the golf courses at the historic McMenamins Edgefield estate, located in Troutdale, Oregon, just 12 minutes from downtown Portland.  There is plenty of free parking on the grounds and the finish line party is covered and heated.

The course runs on packed gravel with short, rolling hills and exceptional views of the mighty Columbia River.  Each lap is exactly 1.55 miles long and 2 laps makes a perfect 5k distance. Racers will be chip-timed for immediate and accurate results and the truly hardy can challenge themselves up to 10k. 

Race, run, walk or waddle – everyone can join in the fun.
