Race Preview: 2019 South Slough Scramble (Astoria)

Many Pacific-Northwesterners know that Astoria, Oregon is a treasure trove of antiques, restaurants, museums and history, laced with all the quaintness of a fishing village (think wooden piers, shingled houses and old-fashioned architecture).  Some may not know that it’s also home to the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, which boasts many recreational areas as well as a Fort Clatsop replica.

The Lewis and Clark Trail Run Series takes place at this location, and includes the South Slough Scramble.  With two scenic courses (differing in length), the race offers views of Saddle Mountain, bottomlands and the Netul river. Participants can choose a 3-mile “short loop” or a 5.5-mile “long loop” and both runners and hikers are both welcome. This is definitely a smaller event (2018 saw about 40 total participants), but is a great opportunity to get out and explore some new parts of Oregon.

This race does not have pre-registration as an option, so show up early to register on race day!

Date: Saturday, September 28, 2019

Time: Registration is 9:00am-9:45am.

Location: Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, 92343 Fort Clatsop Rd, Astoria, OR 97103
