Theme: Stranger Things
In 2019 we are extremely excited to be starting and finishing Run Like Hell at McMenamins Edgefield! Edgefield is a destination resort encompassing a 74 acre parcel of farmland at the mouth of the spectacular Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. Edgefield blends Oregon’s natural beauty with McMenamins’ signature whimsy. The partnership couldn’t be better suited and we are excited to host this event at such an amazing place.
All three distances will start and finish on McMenamins Edgefield property and run through historic downtown Troutdale and along the Historic Columbia River Highway. After the first turn around, the 5k will head back to the finish while the half and the 10k will head out along a beautiful and tranquil paved (and wide) path that runs adjacent to the Sandy River. The courses are amazing! As always, this is a Halloween themed event and the post race party at Edgefield is going to be a spectacle in and of itself! Come dressed in costume and join the circus! You won’t be disappointed.
