The Championship meet served as a celebration of the sport of track and field in Oregon, after more than 1,000 kids competed in 12 TrackTown Youth League all-comer meets across the state this spring.

An out and back course down the beach toward Bob Straub State Park, you are sure to be distracted by brown pelicans, eagles, seals and even whales in the shadow of the majestic Haystack Rock and beautiful Cape Kiwanda. Held as close to low tide as possible, the run is held on hard packed sand, but you many encounter pools of tidal water and uneven ground. After all, this is the BEACH! The Beach Challenge is a fund raiser for the local community’s child care center and is put on by an all volunteer Board and Staff.
