Newport Marathon will be on May 30, 2015!
This year the marathon has sold out already but we thought we would provide a few details for the people who are scheduled to run/walk already! The Newport Marathon is a nonprofit event and all proceeds help fund school athletics in Newport Oregon.
The starting and finishing point is in Yaquina Bay State Park. Along the course runners will be treated to a splendid variety of views and scenery, wildlife and shipping, fishermen and crabbers. It is a flat, very fast, and beautiful course that will produce numerous PR’s. The course is USATF certified and has proven to be a very good “first marathon” as well as an excellent qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
You can find the course map HERE as well as bus routes for that day.
Athletes must pick up their race packets between 3:00 pm and 9:00 pm on Friday May 29th, 2015 at Race Headquarters located at the Embarcadero Resort Hotel. There will be no packet or number pick-up on race day.
A pre-race pasta dinner will be held at 5:30 to 8:00 PM May 29th, 2015 at the Newport High School multi-purpose room. Directions and tickets will be available at race headquarters. The cost is $9.00 per person (kids 11 and under are $4.00) and includes pasta with marinara sauce, salad and dressing, bread, dessert, and soft drinks. See the registration form for details.
