The course is aptly named, because it starts at Rogue Ales in Newport and then runs along Yaquina Bay to a trail that takes you to South Beach Park and back around to Rogue in a loop. 10k participants are done after one tour and half marathoners will tackle the course a 2nd time. The finish line will be well stocked with delicious Clam Chowder from Mo’s, the best place for chowder in the entire state of Oregon.
There are hills, but without hills you would miss some of the views. And hey, this is Oregon. Nearly all the great routes include hills.
