For the participants and families of the participants who flock to this beach community along the Washington coastline very summer, dating back to the event's first running in the summer of 2006, they are sure to have plenty of options.

      Event Start Location
      All of the day's races start and finish at North Bay Park, the city's largest park and a popular local spot for outdoor recreation ranging from sports on land like tennis and basketball to lots of water sports, as the park lies along the northern edge of Ocean Shores' Duck Lake. From the park, those running the half marathon will follow an out-and-back loop course in a counter-clockwise direction around the peninsula.

      Course Description
      Runners will get to see plenty of the scenery for which Ocean Shores is known along the half marathon route, which crosses bridges and takes runners out for a roughly mile-and-a-half stretch along the beach in the race's first few miles. After heading back onto the roadway, runners then head down to the peninsula's southern end, where they make their way around the edges of the Oyhut Wildlife Recreation Area along the shore, and then head north along the shoreline of North Bay before making their way back to the finish line at North Bay Park.

      Triathletes share the same run course, swim in Duck Lake and are presented with a bike ride along scenic roads with the occassional deer on the side of the roads, as well as views of the ocean.

      With the exception of some very minor changes in elevation in the first few miles of the race, both the triathlon and run events are on mostly flat terrain, especially in the second half of the race, which is nearly all flat.

      Awards
      All athletes that finish will receive a finishers medal. Age Group Awards will be given to the top three males and females in each age group; 14-19, 20-29, 30-39. . . and so on in each event.

      Overall Awards will be given out to the Top Three athletes in each gender in each event

      All Athletes will receive a Ocean Shores BIG WEEKEND Tech Tee-Shirt.

      Packet Pickup / Expo
      There will be an early registration and packet pick-up at a registration friendly site (to be determined) on Friday July 12th, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm for both the triathlon and run events held on Saturday July 13th. Packet Pickup will open up again on Saturday from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm for the run events only held on Sunday July 14th.
