Race Preview: 2016 Twisted Pine Run Half and 5M (Newport)

http://www.ardoradventures.com/twisted-pine-run/img/header/2.jpg If you are looking for a scenic coastal run, look no further! The inaugural Twisted Pine Run in Newport is just around the corner. With a half marathon and a 5 miler to choose from, this Ardor Adventures race boasts beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, Yaquina Bay, the Yaquina Bay Bridge, and more. 

Racers will start and finish at South Beach State Park. The 5 mile course stays within the park with 1 mile of pavement, a 1/2 mile of sandy beach, and the rest on single track trails. The half marathon course includes the 5 mile route with the remaining course on flat pavement. Both courses promise to be flat and fast with amazing views.

There is a limited amount of free camping available for racers at two group campsites, which is first come first serve.

All participants will receive a finisher medal and awards will be given to the top 3 male and female finishers in each race. There will also be age group award ribbons. Stick around after the race for live music, food, and random prizes.
