The RRCA Championship Event Series is the largest grassroots organized running series in the US, annually attracting over 320,000 runners. The series features eight races: 1 mile; 5k; 10K; 10 mile; half marathon; marathon; ultra – >26.2 miles; and cross country.

ORRC has been fortunate to annually host at least five of the Oregon state, and one of the Western Region RRCA Championship Series Events in recent years.
The course is basically flat on bike paths, some gravel and rollers. One loop of the course equals 10K; 30K entrants complete three loops. Half marathon course is two loops of a course first utilizing the 10K loop, and then extends on Schuler Road 900 feet beyond the north end of the 10K loop outside of Champoeg Park toward the city of Butteville, turns around returning to the 10K loop.
