Join us for the Royal Run, an adventure obstacle course at the 2018 Oregon WinterFest!

Prepare to battle the elements, scaling walls, hiking over tires and crawling to make your way to the finish. The race will start the Les Schwab Amphitheater Ticket Office under the Start/Finish Arch. Get there early to stretch with your fellow runners! The trail will wind along the Old Mill District & Deschutes River. With a mixture of paved paths and groomed trails, this fun obstacle course is just tough enough to break a sweat—but everyone can join the fun at their own pace, with a choice to run our 5K or 10K.

The WinterFest Fire King and Ice Queen will be there to knight you with a souvenir glass (for the first 200 registrants) and a complimentary beverage as you cross the finish line. Post race celebrations will conclude at the Bent Lounge.




While this race isn’t for the littlest members of our royal court, the Hot Cocoa Run is geared for 3-10 year olds, with races for different age groups.
