The 2013 Portland Challenge will begin at High Noon on Sunday September 8. Come to The Slammer Tavern (500 SE 8th Ave) for all your life-jacket borrowing, T-shirt purchasing, donation-making, hot-dog-and-hamburger-eating, valuable-checking-in and Karaoke-From-Hell listening needs. The journey to the river will begin at approximately 2pm. The crossing--which will take place just south of the Hawthorne Bridge--will begin at approximately 3pm. After the crossing (and group shower at Salmon Street Springs, of course!) Challengers will be shuttled back to the Slammer for an outrageously fun block party with more live tunes, libations and rustic NW cuisine. As in years past, if you can bring your own life jacket, please do!
