Commitment Day Portland
Mount Tabor Park
The 3.1 mile course begins on the north west side of the park, just south of the parking area. Runners will head south down SE Salmon Way and then go left and follow Reservoir Loop which takes participants between the Lower Reservoir (City of Portland #6) to their right and the Upper Reservoir (City of Portland #5) on their left. When nearing the north end of the Loop, runners will head toward the Lower Reservoir and run along the east side of the water. Continuing back down the loop, runners head toward Reservoir #1 and circle the south of the water and then head north on SE East Tabor Drive. Racers will then complete a loop in the middle of the Park around the Mt. Tabor summit. The race ends as runners head north toward Mt. Tabor Drive and head west toward the race finish at the initial parking area.
