Course:A pancake flat 0.7 mile four-corner rectangular course, surrounding the Oregon State Capitol building and directly adjacent to the Willamette University campus. Most of the road is in very good condition. There is, appropriately for our race's early spring timing, a stretch of "pavé": Waverly Street's pavement is broken, the potholes will be clearly marked, but please ride the course before your race and get to know this short stretch of road.
Registration:Onsite Entry Fees: Juniors $5; Men 1/2, Men 3 and Women 1/2 $25, all other categories $20. Registration opens at 12pm and closes 15 minutes before your event. One-day race licenses available for $5. Annual licenses $25 onsite. Registration is in Ford Hall located on the north side of campus by the start/finish line.
Pre-registration:Pre-register online through the OBRA website. Men 1/2, Men 3 and Women 1/2 will be $22, Juniors are $5, and all other categories will be $17. Those who use this pre-registration system will need to check in before their race and sign a waiver for Willamette University. The Waiver can be provided early upon request through the contact information below.

These will be distributed as prime prizes and finishing line prizes.
