Active adventures await you and your family on the Washington Coast

These family-friendly active events include the following:

This 3-day fun-filled festival has events for kids, a non-competitive bike tour, and several race options including a sand marathon, 1/2 marathon, 5k/10k run or walk, and a sunset 5k run & walk. Throughout the weekend enjoy a Health & Wellness Expo hosted by event partners, a beer and food garden courtesy of Deschutes Brewery, live entertainment, and other finish line festivities.

Peninsula Heart & Stroke Walk (June 3)

A 3-mile walk (or 1-mile walk if you are a survivor) along the beautiful Discovery Trail. Put on by Ocean Beach Hospital and the American Heart Association, this walk for a cause is a fundraiser to help raise money for heart disease and stroke research, training more people in lifesaving CPR, and medical breakthroughs. Join your friends, family, and co-workers, start a team, join a team, or sign up as an individual to help raise money for a great cause. Make sure to choose “Heart Walk” as your location and if you start a team select “Peninsula Heart Walk” under the company drop down menu.
