Description

Based on the classic 1980's computer game, The 3rd Annual Oregon Trail® Game 5K and Inaugural 8K, take runners on a cross-country adventure from Missouri to Oregon, over mountains and across rivers, and to their final destination - Oregon City! Runners will have to make decisions along the course such as whether to ford a river, go hunting, and more! Can you make it to Oregon or will you die of dysentary? Each decision you make along the trail will determine your ultimate fate. Runners receive a timed score as well as a game score.
