There’s only one time of year when it’s safe to run down the middle of Highway 101 in Newport — during the annual Loyalty Days celebration. And registration is now open for the Loyalty Days Parade Run, when runners and walkers of all ages can tackle the two-mile parade route while being cheered on by hundreds of spectators.
The Saturday, May 6, race begins at 11:45 am next to Walmart and travels south down Highway 101, exiting at Neff Way and finishing at the Newport Performing Arts Center.
Advance registration is $10 for adults and $3 for Lincoln County School District students. Once again this year, there is a special $500 award for the Lincoln County school with the greatest percentage of students participating.
All registration is online; follow links from the Coast Hills Running Club’s Facebook page.
T-shirts, $8 apiece, are available for those who register before April 28.
Day-of-race registration will be available at the PAC, at $15 for adults and $8 for students.
Race-day registration, pre-registered bib and T-shirt pickup starts at 9 am at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive Street. Racers will be bused from the PAC to the start line, with the last bus leaving at 11:15 am.
