It might seem odd, but '80s and '90s kids across the country have fond memories of dying of dysentery. But it makes sense if you've ever played the 8-bit video game, The Oregon Trail. Now, those grown-up pioneers can get back on the trail—this time in the real world.
On the Oregon Trail Game 5K, runners will have to make all of the familiar decisions that faced them back in the day. Should you ford the river, or float your wagon across? Stop to hunt, or rely on your supplies? No matter what choices they make, runners can be sure of two things: at the end of the day, they'll have fun, and they'll definitely be in Oregon.
As Oregon’s first Main Street, downtown Oregon City is the heart and soul of the Pacific Northwest’s cultural heritage. Just 13 miles south of Portland, Oregon City charms its residents and visitors with its small town feel and eclectic mix of shops and boutiques. Paired with a smattering of restaurants and beer and wine tasting options, it's easy to spend an afternoon or evening here.
