DONNA ON THE SIDE - 125 scenes from the sidelines

Washington-Oregon preps
battle for Northwest supremacy

This is the 8th year of this unique post-season matchup of the best cross country runners from Oregon vs. the best from Washington. The race is run on the gleaming campus of Nike World Headquarters, starting and ending on the soccer field and winding through the campus for 4000 meters.

The teams start from opposite ends of the soccer field. When the cannon sounds, the two states run toward each other like a medieval jousting contest before merging and turning on to the course. Helicopters overhead send video of the race down to large screen TV's near the finish. Spectators crowd the TV tents until the runners return to the soccer field; then they line the 100 meter home stretch to cheer for the green "O" or the blue "W".
