Portland's quintessential fall trail race, now in its 17th year.

Race results are posted here!

t2a_logo2016*Participants: Please email info@trails.org or call 207-775-2411 to pick up your race shirts if you did not yet! You have until SEPTEMBER 30 to pick up your shirts, and then we will not be holding any pre-ordered shirts.
**If you DID not get a shirt, but wanted to purchase one: Unfortunately, we have taken inventory of our stock and do not have enough available to sell. We can sell any left overs after September 30th, after runners who have purchased shirts have pick up theirs.

There’s nothing better than a run or walk along Portland’s waterfront trails in their most glorious season.

Pair that run/walk with pizza, beer, yoga, massages, healthy snacks, and a DJ’d dance party to meet you at the end of it–and you’ve got Portland’s favorite fall 10K! Join almost 2000 runners and walkers for the 17th Annual Trail to Ale 10K Race/Walk and support the trails you love. 

Race starts at 9 am, party starts as soon as you cross the finish line! 

Not interested in racing, but still want to enjoy the day? VOLUNTEER! Sign up here.
