Run on the River

You don't want to miss out on this great event. The best part is that all proceeds go to fund Astoria Parks and Recreation scholarships so that children and families in the area can access health and wellness opportunities through Parks and Recreation.

This is Astoria's premiere half marathon, 10k, and 5k. Enjoy a run around the Astoria River Walk and finish with an amazing hand stamped glass medal made exclusively by Fernhill Glass Studios and stay for the awards an after party Sponsored by Buoy Beer.

Registration includes a t-shirt, finisher's medal, and lunch and a beverage from Buoy Beer Company.

New this year: the course will be USATF certified!

Please be advised

* This is NOT a closed course. There may be other runners/walkers/bikers along the Riverwalk.
* Identifiable volunteers will be on hand to help direct pedestrian and vehicle traffic at the few crossings, particularly on the west end.
* Six aid stations will be available along the entire half marathon course (which includes the 10K and 5K routes). The stations will offer water and snacks donated by our sponsors.
* Run with care! You will be running across trestles, uneven surfaces, and trolley tracks which can be slick especially when wet (and it "sometimes" rains in Astoria!). Please watch your footing at all times.
