Please try to carpool or walk from your hotel or home to reduce parking congestion. Arrive as early as possible to avoid any parking stress.

* This is NOT a closed course. Some portions may be closed but there may be other runners/walkers/bikers/dogs/strollers 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.
* 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.

We will have a Kids Run starting shortly after the 5k start. Keep an eye out for the Kids Run volunteers, register and buy a Kids Run shirt at the registration table.

The 10K and Half Marathon prize ceremony will begin between 11:30/ 11:45 AM. We will wrap that up with the 5k winner results.

Guests will be able to purchase beverage bands from the registration table. Food can be purchased directly from the trucks beginning around Noon. The Lager Fest glass and tokens are sold separately by Buoy Beer.

Volunteers will begin taking down the route barricades at Noon so the Trolley can roll through. Do not be discouraged if you come in after that! We will be cheering you on.

I will have very limited availability between now and the race, so I apologize in advance if you have a question and I am delayed in responding. I will do my very best to get back to you as soon as possible.

We are looking forward to a beautiful day for a race here in Astoria.
See you on Saturday!
