The place to run

If you’re a cross country runner, you’re going to love running at George Fox University! Oregon is a Mecca for distance running, with its rural roads and wide-open green spaces. Our home course is the beautiful Willamette Mission State Park in Brooks, Ore.

We also offer the best in training equipment, including an Alter-G (anti-gravity) treadmill, altitude training equipment, and AQx deep-water running training. We’re also excited about the prospect of a brand new track facility being built on our campus as part of the new Stoffer Family Stadium.
