26th Running of the Piece of Cake Road Race

Sunday March 25th

The same traditional course as in 1999. In the heart of grass seed country in Linn County, near the community of Halsey.  The course is a flat wind swept course with winding and open roads.  A 7.9 mile loop.  Surface conditions grade from excellent to rough pavement, with a safe finish area.  LIGHT TIRES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED.  We have a covered registration area thanks to Oak Park Farms.  We would like to thank Oak Park Farms for the use of their property.  The best way that we can thank them is by respecting their property, and picking up after ourselves.

From I-5 north or south, take Exit 216, and head west on Oregon Hwy 228.  Travel 2.3 miles until you reach 99E, turn north on 99E and travel 2.0 mile, until you reach Oak Plain Drive,  Turn right or west on Oak Plain Drive and travel 1.5 miles to the Start/Finish area.  Driving distance from Portland is about 90 miles.
Note: If you show up after some of the races have started, please exercise caution when traveling from Dannen Road to the parking area.
