  • Identifiable volunteers will be on hand to help direct pedestrian and vehicle traffic at the few crossings, particularly on the west end.
  • Seven 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.
