Race Preview: 2022 Run on the River (Astoria)

The 9th annual Run on the River in Astoria is coming up in just a month of Sunday, May 15th. With a beautiful and scenic route along the Astoria Riverwalk, this event offers a half marathon, 10K, or 5K option starting and ending at Buoy Beer Company (which will also host the post-race seafood boil lunch!).

This is a partially closed course and will have features such as trolley tracks and trestle bridges. You can look at the course maps here for aid station locations, bathrooms, etc.
