Running Events

Running is in our DNA. Home to Pre, The Mother of All Relays, Nike and other national footwear brands, TrackTown USA (aka Eugene) and our abundance of trails, our running culture is celebrated statewide. We invite you to run with us through Oregon’s diverse landscape including coastline, mountains, forests, scenic roads and world race tracks.

Oregon is famous for the Hood to Coast Relay, the biggest relay race in the world, which covers both road and trail running. This epic event sees thousands of participants from around the globe traversing a 200-mile course from the iconic Mt. Hood to the stunning Oregon coast.

Here’s a look at Oregon’s legendary running history and some of the hundreds of dashes, trots, marathons, adventure runs, scenic trails and other awesome spots to run across the state.
