Battle to the Pacific – a Scenic Fall Run at the Beach

The 2023 Battle to the Pacific 5K/10K and half marathon events, hosted by Bivouac Racing, will once again be held in November at Fort Stevens State Park (just outside of Astoria.) There is so much to explore nearby, including a shipwreck on the beach and a historic military area, so be sure to take advantage while you are there. This race is the 4th – and final – event of Bivouac’s trail races for the year.

On Sunday, November 19th, participants will start and finish at Coffenbury Lake and will meander along the paved (and flat!) hiking and biking trails within the park. The courses will go through two underpasses and over a bridge in the park, adding to the already beautiful scenery. The courses are a combination of 3 different loops.  The 5K is 0n the Lake Loop. The 10K includes the Lake Loop and the Inner Loop. The half marathon distance will allow you to run all three, adding the Outer Loop to the mix.

All Bivouac Racing events are cupless, so plan accordingly and enjoy the trails! Also be aware that there is a $5 park permit (checks or cash only, unless using the main ranger station.)

After your race expect food and beer. Winners will receive a Bivouac Racing winners mug, as well as a chance to win some other goodies. Bivouac Racing always puts on a great trail race, so don’t miss out on the final event of the year!


Battle to the Pacific $45-65
