This 13.1 mile course starts at the Stoller Family Estate winery, located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, only 35 miles southwest of downtown Portland. Stoller is off Hwy 99 near the towns of Dundee, McMinnville and Newberg. The race finishes in Carlton, a few miles to the northwest. There is a range of lodging options in the valley, but a limited number of rooms that book quickly on that weekend, so we recommend you make reservations early.

Portland is a viable lodging option for runners looking for an urban experience. Motorcoach transportation will be available to and from the race and runners can reserve their space from the race extras page. To help you plan your race weekend or extended holiday, we have secured room blocks and discounted rates at several hotels and other accommodations in the region.
