The Foot Traffic Flat, held Thursday, July 4 on Sauvie Island in Oregon, boasts one of the flattest and fastest marathon courses on the West Coast. Hosted by The Pumpkin Patch, the event offers a race distance for everyone, making it the perfect kick off to your 4th of July celebrations. Participants may choose between a marathon, half marathon, 10K, or 5K. In addition to the fast times expected from competitors in the half and full marathons, the splendor of Sauvie Island and its picturesque working farmland will be a treat for all visiting runners and walkers. Thousands of songbirds, majestic bald eagles, and scenic waterways are just a few of the sights participants can expect. Post race, all participants are treated to fresh strawberry shortcake, hot dogs, veggie dogs and other snacks. The Pumpkin Patch also has a petting zoo and tractor rides for kids. To date, the Foot Traffic Flat has raised more than $525,000 for the fire department, the Sauvie Island community, and many other local charities, schools, and nonprofits.
