      Newport Marathon

      Marathon Limited to 1000 entrants Starting in Yaquina Bay State Park at the historic "haunted" lighthouse, runners will head north along the ocean through some of Newport's picturesque neighborhoods. This loop through the city is primarily residential with a few short gentle hills and turns at street corners. Heading back through the starting area, runners will proceed downhill under the Yaquina Bay Bridge to the bayfront. Past shops, restaurants, galleries and a large fishing village, the course continues along the bay. Just past mile four, there is a short hill that rises about 40 feet then gently descends back to bay level where it continues for the remainder of the race. The course follows the Yaquina Bay and River estuary to mile 15 where it turns back toward town, retracing the same route. The gentle hill at mile four reappears at mile 26, and it's downhill from there to the finish.

      2014 saw a Half Marathon introduced to this event. The half marathon follows the same beautiful route for the first 9 miles, then turns and comes back to the same finish line as the marathon. At present there is a 250 person limit for the half marathon.

      Both events are chip timed.
