ABOUT THE RACES
We may be at sea level but it'll be a mistake to think these races are flat! Both races start & finish underneath the iconic Yaquina Bay Bridge. Quickly it leaves the most picturesque views Newport has to offer and it leads you to some equally beautiful but challenging trails. The 15k packs approx. 1,350 ft. and the 30k 2,200 ft. of elevation gain. Not too extreme for trail races but way more than what some would expect for sea level Newport!
30K runners are in for a treat! You'll be the first ones to run on the newly built Yakona Bridge (A Yaquina Bay Bridge replica)
POWER COUPLE DIVISON
Team up with your spouse, girlfriend, BFF (you get the idea) and compete in the Power Couple Division. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE IN THE SAME RACE. You may both be in the 30k, 15k, 8k or each can run a different race. The finishing percentage of each participant will be added together and the Power Couple with the highest percentage wins. The Power Couple competition is in additional to the male/female individual races and does not affect an individual's time, placing, or award in the overall race. Prizes for the top 3 in the Power Couple Division!
