About This Activity

Based on the classic 1980's computer game, The 2nd Annual Oregon Trail® Game 5K, presented by BnK Construction, takes runners on a cross-country adventure from Missouri to Oregon, over mountains and across rivers, and to their final destination - Oregon City! Runners will have to make decisions along the course such as whether to ford a river, go hunting, and more! Can you make it to Oregon or will you die of dysentary? Each decision you make along the trail will determine your ultimate fate. Runners receive a timed score as well as a game score.


The Oregon Trail® Game 5K is a fun yet challenging course through historic Downtown Oregon City.

Course features include:

  • Start and finish on historic Main Street in Downtown Oregon City
  • Run past the iconic 99-year-old Municipal Elevator
  • Challenging 223-step run up stairs alongside Singer Hill Falls
  • Beautiful views overlooking the Willamette River and Willamette Falls
  • Run through the historic McLoughlin neighborhood and past attractions including Carnegie Library, McLoughlin House and Barclay House
  • Run through Waterboard Park’s beautiful wooded natural area


Family-friendly and Stroller-friendly

The Oregon Trail® Game 5K is a family-friendly event. Children 12 years and under can register at a special rate of $15 and enter the kids' category, where awards will be given for the top three runners.

The course is stroller-friendly. Strollers will be re-routed to the Muncipal Elevator instead of the stairs to complete the course.

Please note: no dogs allowed on the 5K course.
