Course Info


The 10K course starts in the beautiful Mary S. Young State Park and runs counter-clockwise along Old River Road paralleling, the majestic Willamette River. 

Between mile-marker 3 and 4 is a climb up Glenmorrie Drive. Participants will continue along Highway 43 passing Marylhurst University campus. Upon re-entering the park, participants will transition from pavement to gravel to a bark chip trail and finish near the park pavilion. Click here to view a course map.

The course closes promptly at 11:15 a.m.


Kids' Run

We will have a Kids' Run at the 2018 Up the Lazy River event. This is an untimed run for the little ones. It will start at 10:30 a.m. or when our course monitors/sweeper say it's safe to go. A lead runner and a sweeper will run with each group of kids. We will have multiple "start lines" at approximately 100 m, 200 m, 300 m, and 400 m (subject to change based on ages of registered participants). This is a non-competitive, fun-time, "everyone is awesome" event.

Scoring, Timing, Results and Awards

This event is the Annual ORRC Masters Championship 10K event! All masters entrants—those 40 years-old and up—are automatically entered in the masters championship. Special masters age groups and awards apply for this championship, including:

(1) The Nancy Hinkle Award is given to the top female 41-year-old runner.
(2) Single-year age groups for masters (everyone 40 or older) with ribbons 5 deep per age group. This means masters only compete against other participants of the same age (e.g., 53-year-old men comprise their own age group).
(3) Plaques for top finishers in 8 separate categories:
• 1st Male Overall 10K Run
• 1st Male Masters 10K Run
• 1st Female Overall 10K Run
• 1st Female Masters 10K Run
• 1st Male Overall 10K Walk
• 1st Male Masters 10K Walk
• 1st Female Overall 10K Walk
• 1st Female Masters 10K Walk

Overall, Masters, and the Nancy Hinkle Award designations for this race will not overlap; that is, if the very first person to cross the finish line is a male master, that person would win the 1st Male Overall award, and the next male master to cross would win the 1st Male Master award. Likewise, if the first female master happens to be 41-years-old, she will win the 1st Female Master award, and the next 41-year-old female will win the Nancy Hinkle Award.

Please note that gun times, not chip times, are scored (as per USATF Championship rules). Walkers and runners are scored separately. We don't hold a traditional awards ceremony: Participants should obtain their results immediately post-race at the results table. There, find out how you've placed and if you've won! If you're a winner, pick up your award ribbon (or plaque!) under the awards canopy in the finish area. We aren't able to mail awards after the event, so be sure to take a moment to check your results before you leave!

Food and Drink

Gatorade and water will be offered at the 3.5 and 5.5 mile aid stations. Nutritious snacks and beverages will be offered at the covered pavilion in the rest area to all finishers.

RxBars (https://www.rxbar.com/) will be given to finishers at the event.


After this fine event, take your UTLR bib down to Oregon City Brewing (1401 Washington Street, Oregon City, OR 97045) and get a free beer! This offer starts when the event ends on 5/28 and concludes one week later - June 4th.



Participants should read the Oregon Road Runners Club rules for participating in events.

In addition to the rules linked above, No dogs or strollers are allowed for this event due to narrow trail widths.

The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, ORRC encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of the event.

Event Parking

Overflow parking is at the West Linn Lutheran Church, located at 20390 SW Willamette Drive. There will be a volunteer there to point you to a connector path that will put you right by the start/finish line. This path is quicker than walking on the park access road. Safer, too!
