Get Ready for the Oregon Coast Aquarium 5k & Kids' Dash!

Come for the race, stay for an aquarium adventure!

Every participant in the 6th Annual Oregon Coast Aquarium 5k & Kids' Dash will not only take part in a fun race, they will also receive free entry into the Oregon Coast Aquarium for the rest of the day to celebrate their accomplishment! This 5K (3.1 mile) route will start and end at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, and is perfect for all skill levels and running and walking types. The Oregon Coast Aquarium 5k & Kids' Dash seeks to promote healthy lifestyles on the coast and proceeds will benefit animal care programs at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

The Kids' Dash is a fun way to get kids aged 2-9 involved in their first race too. It teaches them about fitness, gives them a chance to cross a real finish line and introduces them to events that promote and benefit great causes. This closed course is perfect for your little athlete.

The 5k race starts at 8:00 am and the kids’ race begins at 8:45 am on April 21st, 2018, with winners announced at 9:45 am the same day. In addition to the post-race festival, entrance into the aquarium, and a super cool race bib, participants will have the opportunity to purchase a race T-shirt. Racers are encouraged to pick up race packets in advance. Pick up your packet at the Oregon Coast Aquarium on Friday, April 20th from 1:00 to 7:00 pm or on the morning of the race from 6:30- 7:30 am.
