Spring Classic/Home Depot HALF MARATHON

The first 5k will be on Marine Drive (closed to traffic) with the next 10 miles along the Columbia River waterfront pathway. The course is flat, fast and extremely scenic!

DUATHLETES: We believe this is one of the prettiest courses in the Northwest! You’ll be running and biking along the mighty Columbia River with magnificent views of Mt. Hood. Both runs will be out & back 5K’s, flat and fast on Marine Drive. The bike is 15 miles, flat & fast, also on Marine Drive (semi-closed to traffic).

5K RUN1: Mass start on 112th. Turn Left (west) onto Marine drive (running on the road on the river side). Turn around at the half way and run back to the transition along the south side of Marine drive.

15 MILE BIKE: Leave the transition area along the path out of Home Depot and north on 112th. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF ACTION AND THE NARROW PATHS IN THIS AREA THAT YOU RIDE SINGLE FILE UNTIL YOU GET ONTO MARINE DRIVE. DO NOT TRY TO PASS OR OVERTAKE SOMEONE ALONG THE PATH OR 112TH.

Once you are on Marine Drive, then bust it out and go as fast as you like! You will head East on Marine drive until the Turn around at about 185th. Then you will ride West continuing past 112th (transition area) until the 2nd turn around before 33rd. Then ride back towards the start/finish area remembering to ride single file once on 112th and onto the path into transition area.

5K RUN2: You will leave the transition area and run along 112th to Marine Drive. You will turn Right (East) along the Marine Drive pathway until the turn around and then run back to the start/finish.

Please be careful as you enter and exit the transition area and the Home Depot Parking Lot. There will be runners and bikers going in opposite directions and some areas are tight. We will cone off the separate lanes but remember to ride/run safely and watch out for each other. There will be Police, dedicated volunteers, and members of the Why Racing Events Crew on the course to help direct you and provide safety.
