Race Preview: 2019 Tillamook Bay Run 5K/10K

The Tillamook Bay Run is coming up quick on Saturday, August 17th! It’s a beautiful course with views of the ocean and the bay; the website describes it as:

The Tillamook Bay Run is a scenic trail run down the Bay Ocean Spit, down the bay, through the trees, and down the beach. The course narrow’s down to single lane runners at times and is comprised of gravel, dry sand, wet sand, hills and flats. It is your true all terrain race.

With a 5K or 10K option for only $30 for either, pick your preferred distance and enjoy it! Waiting for you at the finish line is a microbrew from Pelican Brewing and post-race food, featuring The Schooner clam chowder!

There will also be prizes for the top finishers: cash, place medals, and gift baskets. The race divisions are: 14 years and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+.
