Join your fellow runners, walkers, bikers and duathletes as we virtually tour the Oregon Coast. The race is approximately 350 miles long and you will have the 45 days (July 31st thru September 13th) to complete the challenge. You can choose to run / walk, bike or do half of each in our duathlon category (175 mile bike and 175 mile walk / run). Challenge your friends, family, co-workers, neighboring towns or just about anyone (like yourself)! Interactive mapping shows you just where you are along the course. Get special digital postcard badges as you pass through milestones along the way. Each registrant will receive a medal and a t-shirt sent to you in the mail. Please see FAQ's for race rules.
Each participant gets an Oregon Coast Challenge shirt, medal, digital bib and printable finisher certificate!

Q: How will I report my miles?
A: Refer to the "results" section on the website for full details.
Q: Why does the day-by-day distance on the map show only whole numbers?
A: Only whole numbers are shown on the map's day-by-day in order to save needed space. Enter distance up to two decimals and the system will retain it., and your total distance shown will equal your totals that you entered.
Q: Which miles / kilometers count?
A: We stole this answer from another virtual run, but it is the perfect answer so we couldn't resist.
Sure, you are self reporting, and we are not requiring "proof", but what miles (or kilometers) should count? This should only be the distances you cover when you actually go out to run or walk and yes, treadmill miles will count as well... and no, elliptical machines do not count. I know some people go thru the day bristling with more electronic devices than a spy plane, counting up every step they take from getting out of bed to retiring for the night... along with a few steps for driving across railroad tracks, jiggling their leg while watching TV, or any other activity that causes one of their devices to register movement. Those are not really fair...What should be added to the daily tally are only the miles you cover while actually doing your daily walk or run, on purpose to cover some ground. Please; no Perry Mason loophole searching... You know the intent of the rule, and that is the rule.
