For the participants and families of the participants who flock to this beach community along the Washington coastline very summer, dating back to the events first running in the summer of 2006, they are sure to have plenty of options. Come out and help us celebrate our 10 year anniversary and be prepared for a great "racecation" for the entire family!
Runners will get to see plenty of the scenery for which Ocean Shores is known along the half marathon route, which crosses bridges and takes runners out for a roughly mile-and-a-half stretch along the beach in the races first few miles. After heading back onto the roadway, runners then head down to the peninsulas southern end, where they make their way around the edges of the Oyhut Wildlife Recreation Area along the shore, and then head north along the shoreline of North Bay before making their way back to the finish line at North Bay Park.
Triathletes share the same run course, swim in Duck Lake and are presented with a bike ride along scenic roads with the occasional deer on the side of the roads, as well as views of the ocean. With the exception of some very minor changes in elevation in the first few miles of the race, both the triathlon and run events are on mostly flat terrain, especially in the second half of the race, which is nearly all flat.
