About This Activity

Nyssa is a small community in Eastern Oregon right on the Idaho/Oregon border. It is the "Thunderegg Capital of the World" and hosts Thunderegg Days every July. Since many are in town for the event we are hosting a race to raise funds for our parks. It is a point to point race that features two of our parks. The race is mostly flat with only a slight elevation. Enjoy country views as you jog through farmland.

-This is a family-friendly event and running strollers are allowed.  However, please be courteous to other runners at the start line by moving to the back of the pack.
-Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in this race. Although we love them, they are too much of a liability for the safety of the other runners.
