Fun & challenging courses
The Willamette is truly a spectacular river. It runs hundreds of miles before it takes center stage though the heart of Portland. Ross Island, just south of downtown, provides a nice loop course for our Elite and Rec racers who will negotiate currents, wind, buoys and their own fitness as they battle the pack around the Island. Three race distances (6, 4.3 and 2 miles) allow racers of all abilities to push their limit.
Whether this is your first race, or your 20th, this event is for you!
