Spend a summer Saturday running a One Day Relay within minutes of Portland. This 65 mile, 12 leg running event incorporates the full length of the Banks-Vernonia State Trail as well as the surrounding area of rural Washington County. Take in a bit of Oregon history while enjoying natures best in the Pacific NW. Team sizes consist of 6 (or less) runners. The Banks-Vernonia Trail, Oregon's first rail-to-trail is a multi-use trail paved over a decades-old train bed. Get ready to be impressed by the beauty of this course. The tree-lined paved trail takes you through gorgeous meadows and across crystal clear streams. You'll cross no less than twelve historical bridges, some on wooden trestles. Centrally located merely 26 miles west of Portland, the quiet, natural beauty of this course will surprise and delight you.
