Both 5k walk/run and 10k run will begin at 9 am on the beach. Check-in/packet pick up and day-of-race registration will begin at 7 am in the Tillamook County Bayocean Park parking lot. The starting line is a short trail walk away from the parking and check-in area. Please allow additional time as the starting line can only be reached by foot.
Port-a-potties will be located near the check-in area/finish line.
After the race, be sure to check out the historical markers and information about the village of Bayocean that was once known as the “Atlantic City of the West.’ The town once boasted a general store, hotel, and a saltwater natatorium. After the construction of a jetty to the north of the spit at the mouth of Tillamook Bay, ocean currents began to wash away Baoyocean. Erosion claimed most homes and business buildings in the town with the last home falling into the sea in 1960. Today, Tillamook County still owns much of the land and manages the land as a primitive park with miles of trails and beach access.
The Tillamook Bay Run is an event hosted by Ultimook nonprofit that supports local youth running programs in Tillamook County including: The Tillamook Distance Project (high school cross country and track program), Ultimook Running Camp (youth running camp), and the Ultimook Track Club (region-wide youth running club).
