Race Info

The Run Fool is a new single-day relay race taking place the weekend prior April Fool's Day in Newport, OR. Gather your budddies and form a team of 2, 4 or 6 and get ready to run a different kind of relay.

Why Run Fool?

Because it's held around April Fool's Day and there'll be lots of running - teams may run up to 12 hours! How much we're running won't be known until right before the race. This is not a joke. Register and get ready to run between 6 - 12 hours. We'll have 6 to 12 hours in 30 minutes increments times thrown in a hat. A single time will be drawn before the race. Time drawn is the time we'll run - simple as that! Here's another fun twist to this race - time drawn won't be disclosed to the athletes. Only the RD will know the time. Race ends when the clock stops!

Run, Party - Party, Run

Due to the figure-8 course, all athletes congregate in the single-large aid station cheering their teammates. We'll provide the music and you'll provide the dance parties!
