The route is a gentle 1.2 mile walk around Portland's beautiful Mt. Tabor Park.


See important parking details, below. Give yourself plenty of time to reach the 9:30 check-in for bag pickup.


There is plenty of time for the whole family to enjoy the breathtaking vistas, fun activities, and interesting education stations along the route. Instead of large mass starts, households will start the course on their own, distancing safely from other groups, at any time during their group's window. (Group A announced at ~10:00-10:15; Group B announced at ~10:15-10:30)

The route starts and finishes near check-in, at Picnic Shelter A. If you are not up for the walk, you can have a seat, enjoy activities at the base, and celebrate with starters and finishers.
