This marathon course features the Three Capes Scenic Loop, starting at Cape Meares, passing Cape Lookout, and finishing at Cape Kiwanda. The rugged course passes through or runs adjacent to six State Parks, two National Wildlife Refuges, multiple County Parks, and boasts of stunning vantage points of the Tillamook Bay, Netarts Bay, and the Pacific Ocean. Starting and ending at sea level, there is nearly 2,400 feet of climb within the course, offering a challenging racing venue that is great for building team camaraderie. If you dare to tackle this course as a two-person team or solo, times will not be fast, but the satisfaction of completion will be as grand as the view.
