Contest announced to name Mt. Tabor Race Series

Mt. Tabor Circuit Race

[Racing in Mt. Tabor.]

The Mt. Tabor Race series is a Portland institution that goes back over 50 years. The 1.3 mile roller-coaster circuit through Mt. Tabor Park is cherished by hundreds of local racers each year for its challenging hills, technical corners, and natural beauty.

Event promoter Clark Ritchie has just announced a contest to come up with a slogan or motto for the legendary race. The author of the winning slogan will receive a $25 gift certificate to River City Bicycles. He says it’s only open to OBRA members but if you come up with something really good maybe he’ll make an exception.

Here are the details:

E-mail me (your best slogan(s) by 5pm on June 15. Preference will be given to those that are short and sweet. Nothing offensive or vulgar. I will select the 5-7 best entries and conduct a public web-based poll. Votes will be accepted from June 16 to July 6. The slogan that receives the most votes by 5pm on July 6 will be declared the winner.

More details here.
