During this time of year in St. Helens, temperatures tend to range from the low 30s to upper 40s during the day (Fahrenheit). Rainfall is common so it’s important that participants dress appropriately for potentially wet conditions—but don’t worry about snow since it rarely falls at this time in Oregon! Even if it does rain or snow on race day however, the beauty of running along the river makes up for it.
The crowds are usually quite large for this event due to its popularity among both locals and visitors alike! Expect plenty of cheering supporters throughout your journey as well as volunteers providing water and other resources at various points during your trek—a welcome sight after 13 miles!
