Race Preview: 2019 Charleston Salmon Run 10k/Half/Marathon & 1 Mile Crab Walk (Coos Bay)

Get excited! It’s time for the 3rd Annual Charleston Salmon Run & Crab Walk! This year’s 10k, Half Marathon, and Marathon will be on October 5th in Charleston, OR where the Oregon coastal views of Coos Bay will entice you to keep going!

The marathon will kick off race day at 7:45AM, followed by the half marathon at 9:30AM. The 10k is at 10:00AM and the 1 Mile Walk is at 10:30AM. Race Shuttle info will be available at a later time. Medals will be handed out to Marathon and Half Marathon finishers, and shirts will go to the marathon, half marathon, and 10k participants (late registrants not guaranteed a shirt.)

You can check out the course specifics here for the marathon, here for the half marathon, and here for the 10k. There will be portable restrooms at the start, finish, and along the course.

There is a course time limit of 7 hours for the full marathon, or about a 16 minute per mile pace. There will be a course sweep at the end, and runners will no longer have traffic protection. Aid  stations will begin to be torn down at this time. The half marathon has a course limit of 3 ½ hours, though the finish line will remain open for the entire 7 hours for the marathon. There will be no marathon pace groups and there will be no wheelchairs, bikes, skates, dogs, or earpiece music devices allowed on the course.

The 10k cost is $25, the half marathon is $69, and the full marathon is $99. Refunds are not available and entries will be non transferable.

You have two options for packet pick-up on race weekend. The delicious 7 Devils Brewing Co will host a packet pick-up from noon to 8:00PM on Friday October 4th, and Bayside Coffee, (which is very close to the start line,) will have packets available race day from 6:00AM to 9:00AM. There is NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION available for the marathon and half marathon, but 10k participants can wait until race day if need be. Online registration closes on October 4th.
