Welcome to the 2023 Columbia Century Challenge!
We can’t wait to see you June 10th at Heritage Park in Scappoose, OR! (52469 SE 2nd St, Scappoose, OR 97056)
Our Start/Finish location will be next to a beautiful water pad and behind the famous Scappoose Farmers Market! This will give your family and friends who come with you plenty of activities to check out.
Important ride notes:
-Check-in will begin at 6 a.m., where you will be given your rider packet, which includes your number bib.
-Keep your bib visible so our roamers can identify you during the event.
-Aid stations will be available along the route (approx 4 or 5 hours) and close as soon as the last rider passes through.
-Ham radio operators will be at stations where there is a lack of cell reception in case of any emergencies.
-Barlow Bikes will provide minor mechanical support should the need arise. Each aid station will have a repair kit for very basic repairs.
-Upon completing the ride, you will need to check back in with us so that we know you completed the event. If we show you did not check-in, we will contact you and your emergency contact.
-The Farmers market will have a few food vendors. We encourage you to visit them or any of our local restaurants only minutes away from Heritage Park.
