ROUTE

We've updated our race routes keys with more efficient placement of bathrooms and aid stations. Check it out. http://www.astoriaparks.com/race_routes.aspx

Please be advised
This is a PARTIALLY 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.
Five aid stations will be available along the entire half marathon course (which includes the 10K and 5K routes). The stations will offer Aquafina and snacks donated by our sponsor, the Astoria Co-op. 
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.
