START LINE & COURSE:
There are two start areas for each race. Runners will line up behind their chosen college. The separate start lines will face each other like the armies of old. Fastest runners will go to the front of the start line. At the start, the two teams will run towards each other, clash and merge into race battle!
Get ready to set some personal records! The very flat course, combined with the rivalry energy will make these fast and fun races for everyone. The course is all on parking lot, road, sidewalk, and paved trails. Wind around the Columbia River, Portland International Raceway, & Columbia Slough Trail.
Finish place and time matters! The lower the better. The top 100 finishers in each of the 5K and 10K will score the number of points equal to their finish place. So if you finish 1st place, you score one point. For example, if you finish 20th place, you score 20 points.
Prepare for the post-race party which features a beer garden & food at the Expo’s West Delta restaurant and patio. Vendors, DJ, giveaways, and more rivalry games like Cornhole & Ladder Ball. If you take an event picture of you or your friends with your phone and upload it to Facebook and show us, you will receive two raffle tickets to be entered into our raffle drawings.
Again, bring any tailgate gear you may have to the after party for more rivalry fun (i.e. school colored canopies, chairs, etc. No beer or open flame grills please). The lobby will have a restaurant with tv’s if you feel like watching some football.
