We have really been looking forward to sharing some miles on the trails with all of you this June, however the Governor’s re-opening schedule will still have gatherings limited to 250 at the end of June so this change makes the most sense for everyone.

Not to worry! The awesome staff at Eagle Creek Park has worked with us to move this event to Saturday, August 29th! Everyone currently registered will automatically be moved to the new date so you don’t need to worry about missing out on running with us under the stars.

We do understand that some of you may not be able to attend on the new date so we have a couple options for you:

  • You may sell and transfer your entry to another racer. Once you complete the sale, the new runner must complete the TRANSFER ENTRY FORM on our website. We have waived the processing fee for these transfer.
    • To help you connect with other runners that may be interested, we have created a post on the FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE. Please post a comment here if you are looking to sell your entry.
  • As with all our events, you may choose to TRANSFER YOUR ENTRY TO THE VIRTUAL RACE and complete your run/walk on your own time at any location of your choosing (Note: Like all events, there is a transfer fee for the virtual race choice, however we have discounted this fee to just cover shipping costs).

Thank you for all the awesome support and make sure you find some time to #DoTheTrails!
