Race registration, start and finish at the yurt just south of Sunset Bay State Park, Charleston, Oregon.
This race is a hilly, scenic trail along the scenic Oregon Coast. A very challenging course for the longer distances and the views will take what breath you have left away. Seriously, this race has it all, killer hills through the woods, and an amazing flat cliff section where you’ll see sea lions, rocks, the deep blue sea, and if you’re very lucky, a passing whale. Not to be missed, this is an amazing course at a give-away price.
Speaking of give-aways, we do not include T-shirts in the basic race entry in an effort to keep costs down (come on, this is the cheapest race you’ve entered since the 80’s, right?) and because we know many of you already have a closet full of race T-shirts. BUT, this is a truly awesome race, and you may want a quality, moisture wicking, t-shirt to subtly brag that you did it. You can get a T-shirt for only $15 when you register by August 19.
Restrooms and water are located at the start/finish line. There are also restrooms at 4 miles for the 15 K and 1/2 Marathon participants. The course is open to traffic (while this is a trail run, we could not avoid roads altogether), so be alert. This is a RRCA sanctioned event. For safety, NO headphones, rollerblades, skateboards (hey, you’re on trails, that’s not even possible), bicycles, animals, or jogging strollers are allowed during the race.
There is no cell-phone service at Sunset Bay.
Ribbons to top three winners overall and in each age-group. There will also be tons of fabulous prizes donated by local businesses.Why?
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Pregnancy Resource Center in Coos Bay.
