Contest Info:

This event is a charitable food drive for OREGON FOOD BANK to help the hungry in Portland. Food will be collected at the lower parking lot on the North side of Mt.Tabor Park. (Next to the bathrooms and baskteball courts). Raffle tickets for prizes will be given only to RACERS who have signed the liability waiver.
4 items of approved food (see below) are required for entry into the race. Bring more food for more tickets! Every 4 items will receive another raffle ticket with no limit on donations for tickets. More food, more tickets, more chances of winning prizes from our generous sponsors below. Any other donations are welcome.

After everyone is signed in and all food is collected, we will hike up to the upper parking lot and gather at the gate leading into Run 1 - a closed to car traffic hill leading around the Reservoirs. Here we will carry on the tradition of this race by doing a fun group run and celebrate the history of longboarding at Mt.Tabor! Once you get down to the lower gate, continue downhill towards the exit of the park turning into Salmon St. We will gather again on the Westside of 60th ave on Salmon for the start of the race.

This is the original course used for Portland Pusher #4 in 2005 and the Annie Ross Open for the last 5 years. This will be the seventh year of racing this course. 8.5 Miles through lower S.E. Portland. First 5 miles is mostly slight downhill with two 6-10 block sections of steeper downhill including 3 traffic light signals to watch for. As a city bike route there are very few stop signs along this course, but please be aware of traffic at all times. The last 3 miles you enter the bike path leading you south along the Willamette River towards Sellwood Park - Refer to Map Link.


Prize Raffle near the finish line at Sellwood Park after everyone has finished (appox 12:30-1pm).
After Party following the Prize Raffle at Hot Lips Pizza on S.E. 22nd and Hawthorne.
We have a large area reserved at 2:30pm.

Reigning Champion Robin McGuirk has never been defeated on this course, can he do it again for the seventh time? Or will someone else step up to become the first P-town Throwdown winner? hint hint - Come on out NYC!!!

Together we can make a big difference in people's live right here in Portland. Bring food and lets have fun Rollin' down the Eastside!

*It is legal to skate on any street or sidewalk in the city 24 hours a day outside of the defined downtown core. In the downtown core area–defined geographically by Naito Parkway to the east, 13th Avenue to the west, Northwest Hoyt Street to the north and Southwest Jefferson Street to the south–you are allowed to skate in the street only, not on the sidewalk.

The City of Portland has designated certain downtown streets as "preferred skating routes." These streets will be signed as skate routes. Outside of downtown, the Portland Office of Transportation recommends skaters use designated bike routes. Those routes are signed for bicycles and will be signed for skating in the future. To obtain more information on the city’s bike routes and to get a map, please call Transportation Options at 503-823-CYCL(2925).

There is NO skating allowed on any portion of the downtown transit mall on 5th and 6th Avenues or on the walkways in the center of the downtown park blocks.

All skaters under the age of 16 years old must wear a helmet at all times while skating. If you skate after sunset, you must wear either reflective materials, a flashing reflector or a light on both your front and back. All skaters using the city streets must obey the same rules of the road that apply to bicycles.

Any violation of the new skate rules carries a $25 fine. If you are under 16 and get caught skating without a helmet, your parent or guardian will be notified of the violation.

Remember, it is still ILLEGAL to skate on private property or to cause damage to any ledges, stairs, rails or other urban architecture. Other applicable laws still apply to this illegal behavior and these laws will be strictly enforced by the Portland Police Bureau. It is also still illegal to skate on any brickwork, cobblestones or ornamental surface, picnic table, tennis court, fountain area, planter or sculpture located in a public area (City Ordinance 20.12.205).*
