The unsurpassed beauty and rugged terrain of the OR Coast offers a unique training environment that will challenge and inspire runners of all levels, with trips to various beaches, logging roads, and trails.

The Sasquatch Games is the ultimate team building exercise.  Whether you come as an individual or as a team, you’ll all go home with a deeper love for the sport and a passion for leadership and working together as a team.
