Thanks to the support of NOAA's MOC-P all participants get a rare opportunity to run on the 1,300+ feet pier. Races start and finish in the beautiful under the iconic Yaquina Bay Bridge.
The race offers some of the most scenic views in Newport - the Pacific Ocean, Yaquina Bay, the iconic Yaquina Bay Bridge, Hatfield Marine Science Center, NOAA's 1,300+ feet pier and for the half marathoner's some sweet single-track trails!
The 10k & 5k course is flat, fast course perfect for a PR. The half marathon course on the other hand is a challenging course with approximate 1,500 ft of elevation gain.
