* Deschutes Brewery beer

* Holiday fun before and after at World Trade Center

The 10K course is a double-loop of the beautiful riverside 5K course. The course follows the waterfront on both the West and East Esplanades, and runs over the Steel and Hawthorne Bridges, offering participants spectacular views of the lights of our beautiful city reflected on the water!

The 1.5-Mile Run/Walk heads south along the waterfront prominade to River Place with a return to the World Trade Center.
