We will have water and electrolytes (Glukos) at the Start/Finishline and at Main City Park and bathrooms will be available at both locations within walking distance.  We will have water at the Palmblad exchage and one Porta Potty.  If you need more fluid than that, please consider carrying it during your run. We will have limited quantities of Gu available also.  Since this is an out and back you will pass by each aid station twice.

Breakfast and Warming Area at the Boring Grange

We are going to have a wonderful breakfast at the Boring Grange located at 27861 SE Grange St. Boring, Or 97009.  It is about a 5 minute walk to the start of the race.  We will serve Coffee, Bob's Red Mill Oatmeal, and Pancakes with toppings as well as Blueberries provided by Scenic Fruit Company.  This will be our finish line food.  None will be provided at the actual finishline, just water/electrolytes.  A few of our Vendors, Race Morning Packet Pick-Up, and Bag Check Pick-Up (drop off will be at the start line for bag check/ pick up will be in the grange)  will all be located at the Grange. Non-race participants can enjoy breakfast too, and we will gladly accept any donation and put it toward our scholarship fund.  Awards will also be in the Grange at 11:30am Race Morning.

Relay Transportation

Relay Transport

As with most relays, transportation of relay members to the exchanges is up to each team. So, your team should arrange how to proceed so that everyone gets to the exchanges and then back to the start and finish. We will assist by having a box at the aid stations where you can leave your keys, but (and this is important) the keys need to be clearly marked with either your team name or team number so your other members can find them and actually drive the vehicle back. We are not responsible for lost keys or identifying your keys, so please make sure you mark them well before the race. Here are some tips:

Two person relay – there is only one exchange location and that is at Main City Park in Gresham. It is recommended that the second runner drive to the exchange and park, then when handing off the baton, second runner can either give the keys to the first runner or leave them in the box for the first runner runner. Then, as the second runner heads back to Boring, the first runner can drive the vehicle back.

Three person relay – there is only one exchange place and that is at the Palmblad/Telford Road aid station along the Springwater.  In this case, the second and third runners drive to the exchange and park. The first runner can wait at the exchange for the second runner to return, then they both can drive to the start finish while the third runner completes the relay. Because there will always be two runners at this exchange, there is no need to use the key box and the third runner can hand the keys over to the first runner before starting the last leg.

Four person relay – This one is a bit more complicated, because you have to both drop off runners at the two exchange locations and then pick them up once they finish. This one is much easier if you have a support person driving for you, but a team can also do it on their own if necessary. Before the race starts, the second, third and fourth runners should drive to the two exchange areas, where the third runner drives and drops off runners two and four at Palmblad and then drives and parks at Main City Park.  When runner two gets to main City Park and makes the baton exchange, they retrieve the keys and drive back to the Palmblad exchange and pick up both runners one and three and head back to Boring. Not really that complicated, but just a bit more than the other two relays.  

Please refer to the map under the Course Map and Exchanges section to see the placement of the exchanges.

Packet Pick Up

Packet Pick Up will be from 4pm to 7pm on Friday, December 30, 2017 at Mt Hood Lanes in Gresham located at 2311 E. Powell Blvd., Gresham, OR 97080, (503) 492-9820.  Come pick up your packet for your whole relay team, so you don't all need to come individually.  We will also have Registration Kiosks available for last minute sign ups.  Come take advantage of no lines, warm indoor location with great parking at our Packet Pick Up!

The Goal of this Race

Eastwind Running and Endurance is putting this race on to award a scholarship in the Spring of 2018 for local high schoolers  who participate in physical fitness and incorporate it into their busy lives. They dont have to be varsity athletes or winners of a full ride athletic scholarship to find value in fitness!  We as adults, try to model this in hopes our youth will see the benefits a keeping fitness focused.   We want to give back to our youth with two college scholarship: $2,000 and $1,000 award each year. Thank you for supporting our youth by participating and showing that fitness can be fun, challenging, and rewarding!  Because of your support we were able to give two $1,000 scholarships to two outstanding applicants from Sandy High School to be used in the Fall of 2017.

Questions?

We are using Disposible Chip timers.  For the Individual Half Marathon racer, you will have a chip on your bib.  For Relay Teams, we will only have chips on the first and last runner's bib as we are not timing each leg of the relay only the over all time it takes your team to complete it. Please be aware of this as you pass out your bibs on race morning to your team mates.  Also, If you are running the start leg,  so your chip does not record your finish time early, after you start the race please do not cross the finish line or come within 20ft of the finish line until your last team member finishes.
