About This Activity

Cold, windy and raining . . . a perfect day for a run!

Gear up and get out with thousands of fun-loving people on this costumed winter run. Laugh at the elements and gather for a delicious finish line party featuring great food and beverages. Enjoy hot drinks, homemade soups and fresh baked bread from McMenamins!

The Worst Day of the Year Run treks around the golf courses at the historic McMenamins Edgefield estate, located in Troutdale, Oregon, just 12 minutes from downtown Portland. There is plenty of free parking on the grounds and the finish line party is INDOORS and heated.

The Worst Day of the Year Run is all about hordes of participants in outrageous costumes.

Come in costume and you’ll receive a free beer or non-alcoholic drink. We will recognize the funniest, best weather-theme, best group and most elaborate, so don’t be shy–winners in each category receive two free passes to 2016 Worst Day of the Year Run.

Race, run, walk or waddle – everyone can join in the fun!
