Event Description

Oregon's Maximum-Security Prison welcomes outside runners to participate in the following 2017 races:

  • March 17
  • April 28
  • May 19
  • June 9
  • July 7
  • August 25
  • September 8 - Half-Marathon
  • October 6

A Total of 20 guest runners will be added on a first-come, first-served basis, and notified by email. Once selected you will be asked to provide the following:

  • DOB (Date of Birth)
  • State ID or Driver's License #
  • Confirm your attendance 10-days prior to race date


Due to Security protocol, we have been limited to 20 Outside Guests per race, so confirmation is very important. If for some reason you can't attend the 10 days will allow us time to notify someone on the wait list a spot has come available. Once the background check is conducted you will receive notification of results, and will be provided further information containing the logistics of visiting the facility.

Our program is self-sustaining with no financial assistance from the State of Oregon. By Administrative Rule we are not allowed to charge inmates an entrance or race fee, therefore, we rely soley upon donations to fund our races. A small donation would be greatly appreciated, but of course not required.

If you would like to participate in this one of a kind experience please contact the email below. Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon.
