East Oregonian River Run

East Oregonian River Run

Race canceled for 2014

Welcome to Pendleton, Oregon in the heart of Eastern Oregon and to the East Oregonian River Run, one of the oldest fun runs in the area.  There are three distances to choose from - a 1 mile, 5K, and a 15K.  All three races follow the scenic Umatilla River for at least a portion of the race. 

The challenging 15K course comes off of the river and up the Highway 37 hill.  Once on top, you'll enjoy beautiful fields of grain and a tremendous view of the Blue Mountains on the return.  On this course, what goes up must come down!  Enjoy a fast finish back to the Umatilla River.

A great thanks to the East Oregonian, who continue to be the title sponsor for this great event.
