july 13, 2019 EVENT DATE with first city celebration
5th Annual Oregon Trail Game 5k + Kids Race
The fourth annual Oregon Trail® Game 5k is a fun run based off the 1980’s classic computer game, The Oregon Trail®! Runners are taken on an interactive journey where they’ll make decisions as if they were traveling from Missouri to Oregon. Will you float or ford the river, or die of dysentery along the way? Each decision you make along the trail will determine your ultimate fate. This one-of-a-kind event celebrates Oregon City’s heritage and encourages an active lifestyle! All racers get a branded certificate.
8:00 am – 11:30 am
