A portion of the proceeds from every race registration will go directly to the Salmon SuperHwy to aid in their unprecedented effort to restore access to almost 180 miles of blocked habitat throughout six major salmon & steelhead rivers of Oregon’s North Coast.


“Pelican Brewing is proud to support the Salmon Superhwy Project and since becoming aware of the project last year, we have been looking for more ways to increase awareness and raise funds”, says Jim Prinzing, CEO Pelican Brewing. “We started that effort by creating Five Fin West Coast Pilsner, a beer we designed specifically for the SSH, and now we are really excited to host the Pelican Salmon Run to raise money and educate more folks about the need.”
