More: Join us for a weekend filled with running, biking and swimming race events! The Ocean Shores Big Weekend Tri & Foot Fest hosts no fewer than eleven race events, including a half iron relay, half iron triathlon, a Olympic relay triathlon, a Olympic and sprint triathlon, a half iron and Olympic distance Duathlon (Bike/Run) a 13.1-mile half marathon, a 10K and a 5K race, and a triathlon for kids. 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.
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.
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.
