    Small, low-key race on paved roads around Sauvie Island. Lots of food at the start and finish. I was lucky it was overcast and cool; on a hot, sunny day there is literally no shade. If driving, give yourself plenty of time to get on the island before the race starts.

    This is a very fast course, but not really as flat as advertised. Lots of osprey. There is a long out and back, then a loop around much of the island. Nice farmland. Great swag and food at the finish.

    This is a great race if you want a PR without “cheating” by doing a downhill point to point course. It is about 98% flat and the only hills are short and not very steep. It is mainly though agricultural land, so might be refreshing for city slickers, but could be boring if you’re from a rural area. It’s still a great course if you want a fast time. The only possible downside is the time of year. It can get hot, even in NW Oregon in July. I lucked out this year with near perfect weather though. It was nice and cool with no real rain. The medals are large and well designed, and they didn’t run out of strawberry shortcake this year.
