LEWIS AND CLARK — Lewis and Clark National Historical Park hosts its first trail run of the year on Saturday, March 23.
Come for either a 5K or 10K course that features the Kwis Kwis Trail. The 10K run includes long, steep sections. The start/finish line will be at the Fort to Sea Trail trailhead off Fort Clatsop Road.
Allow time to park at one of the Fort Clatsop Visitor Center parking lots, register at the Visitor Center, then enjoy a half-mile warm-up hike on the Fort to Sea Trail to the start line prior to the 10 a.m. start. Register that morning from 9 to 9:30 at the Visitor Center.
The cost to participate is the purchase of a $30 Annual Park Pass that grants entry into all of the 2019 Lewis & Clark Trail Series events and admission to the park for a year. Registration is free with any pass that covers entry into all of our nation’s National Parks. Participants younger than 18 need their parent or guardian to sign the registration form. A prize drawing will be held afterwards.
No pets are permitted on the course during the event (pets leashed to people are welcome on the park trails at other times).
The Lewis & Clark Trail Series is sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association, which supports park education and interpretative activities.
