The Newport Marathon & Half Marathon is one of those bucket-list races in the Pacific Northwest, a beautiful coastal option for us all. The bad news is that the permits were a no-go this year due to Covid restrictions, which is unfortunate for the race community. But the good news is, you can still show your support and run this race virtually in 2021! You’ll be mailed a T-Shirt and a medal, and you can do the race from anywhere you wish!
The only parameters you need to concern yourself with in doing this virtual race is getting your distance (a full or half marathon, your choice) completed sometime between June 5th and June 12th. Map yourself out a run and do it anywhere and at any time of day. Post your time and a race selfie (or any race image of your choosing) here. Make sure you spell your name exactly as it is on your registration.
If you already registered for this event previously, you now have the chance to modify your registration up until April 30th. Your shirt and medal will be mailed before June 5th, 2021. You also have the option of donating your race fee or requesting a refund. Just use this link if that’s your plan.
Support your local races and run Virtual! The end is near, and our running community needs us more than ever!!
