Based on the classic 1980's computer game, The 5th Annual Oregon Trail® Game 5K and Kids Run, 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 dysentery? Each decision you make along the trail will determine your ultimate fate. Runners receive a timed score as well as a game score.

**New this year** - an 8-bit t-shirt is INCLUDED in the price of your 5k registration this year!
