August 8, 2020 – Cancelled
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we are cancelling the 2020 Circle the Bay.
We believe this is the most responsible course of action. We are saddened by the circumstances that are causing us not to be hosting these events. We believe it is our role to keep our runners and their families healthy by decreasing exposure risk. We hope you understand. We hope to see you all in 2021.

Information about the area
We’re located on Oregon’s Adventure Coast, sheltered by undeveloped shoreline and surrounded by one of the largest estuaries in Oregon. Oystercatchers, egrets, herons, and many other birds stalk the mudflats of this estuary. Our costal community is home to a nationally acclaimed Art Museum, a fantastic microbrewery (7 Devils), many notable restaurants, a World Class Golf Resort (Bandon Dunes), several state and city parks, and endless opportunities for fishing, crabbing, and paddling.
Visitors can make the most of the season’s warm (but not hot) sunny days and temperate evenings.
Come see what attracts so many runners to Oregon’s Adventure Coast to ‘Circle The Bay.’
