The Willamette River Relay is the product of a long-standing partnership between Calapooia Watershed Council and Calapooia Brewing Company. Both partners wanted to create a fun, family friendly event that would highlight the outdoor recreation, shopping, dining, and tourism attractions in Historic Downtown Albany as well as the many restoration and conservation projects happening around Albany to improve the health of the Willamette River.
Willamette River Relay invites individual competitors or teams of two, three of four to compete in either the short or long course. The short course starts at Hyak Park and the long course at Avery Park in Corvallis - each ends with a post-race river celebration at Monteith Riverpark in Albany. Along the way competitors and supporters will learn more about all the great restoration and conservation efforts happening on and around the Willamette River, as well as the many features of Historic Downtown Albany that make the area a great place to work, play, and recreate!
Relay racers will be welcomed by a post-race celebration in the park with food and beverage garden featuring Calapooia Brewing Company brews and 2 Towns Ciderhouse Cider!
