Marathon distance added in 2020! Map will be finalized and published end of February. It'll be approx. 55% trails, 37% road & 8% sand (approx. 2 miles on the beach).
South Beach State Park
The races will start and finish at the group campsites in South Beach State Park. Half-Marathon starts at 9:00 AM and 5 Miler starts at 10:00 AM. 2019 will be the 4th edition of the Twisted Pine Run and it's becoming one of my favorites races we host. The weather in September is spectacular in Newport and the courses have the most beautiful views. Check out the photos from previous years.
5 miler course is a mostly single track trails in South Beach State Park with about .6 mile of sand. Fast course with beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean,Yaquina Bay and the iconic Yaquina Bay Bridge!
Half-Marathon Course is approx 2 miles of hard packed sand, 4.5 miles of trails and the remaining distance is 100% paved - flat and fast! It follows the the 5 miler course up to approx the 2 mile marker. At this point it heads east along the South Jetty Rd which you'll enjoy beautiful views of the Yaquina Bay, Iconic Yaquina Bay Bridge, Rogue Brewery, South Beach Marina, Hatfield Marine Science Center, Oregon Coast Aquarium and more of the Yaquina Bay as you complete the "Idaho Point" loop.
