Fort Stevens State Park is located on the coast near Astoria and has long been one of my favorite places to camp. The 2018 Battle to the Pacific 5k/10k/Half Marathon is being held there on November 4th and there is so much to explore while you are there, including a shipwreck on the beach and a historic military area.
Bib pip-up will occur the day before the race at Fort George Brewery, one of my personal favorite places to eat and enjoy a beer, or you can wait until the morning of the race and pick it up at the start line.
The half marathon will start at 9:00AM and the 5k and 10k will begin at 10:00AM. The race will start and finish at Coffenbury Lake at picnic area ‘A’ and will utilize the hiking and biking trails at park. This means flat, paved trails surrounded by the beauty of the trees and runners will go through two underpasses and over a bridge within the park. Check out the course map here.
All participants will receive medals, and 1st place men and women will also receive medals in each race distance.
The cost for the race is $25 for the 5k, $25 for the 10k, and $45 for the half marathon. Registration is only open to 150 participants, so register today!
