Race Information

Run Like Hell is a Halloween-themed race that sees participants dress out in full costume. The run has become a Portland Fall tradition with more than 4,000 runners coming out on an annual basis to participate.

All three distances will start and finish on McMenamins Edgefield property and run through historic downtown Troutdale and along the Historic Columbia River Highway. After the first turn around, the 5k will head back to the finish while the half and the 10k will head out along a beautiful and tranquil paved (and wide) path that runs adjacent to the Sandy River. The courses are amazing! Every year this is a Halloween themed event and the post race party at Edgefield is going to be a spectacle in and of itself! Come dressed in costume and join the circus! You won’t be disappointed.
