Small Race Preview: 2017 Race to the Bar 5K/10K (Warrenton)

The bar you’re thinking of comes later. This one is talking about the Warrenton sand bar! The 2017 Race to the Bar is a 5K / 10K evening beach event that starts at the Peter Iredale Shipwreck site and runs to the South Jetty (or sooner for the 5K) for a simple out and back course. The event ends with a bonfire and music on the beach!

There will also be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals for each category and the race proceeds benefit the Lower Columbia Hospice!
