The beach, the beach, the beach…there is no place more relaxing, rejuvenating and romantic than an Oregon coast get-away for the special person that we call ‘Mom’.

This year we are hosting a very casual Mother’s Day Weekend, where our entire staff will be waiting to create a wonderful weekend experience, complete with a beautiful brunch presentation each morning and a Wine and Cider Appetizer Hour every afternoon.

Let us do the work, while Mom can rest and enjoy being waited on hand and foot for the entire weekend.

Surely, a special stay at our Castle on the Coast will make any Mom feel like the Queen she is!

October 6, 2012 Rock the Beach 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk at Cannon Beach, OR

September 16th, 2012 by archcapeinn
Cannon Beach OR Run/Walk 2012

The 2012 Rock the Beach Run/Walk in Oregon features a beautiful course right on Cannon Beach.

Saturday ~ 9:30 am to 1:00 pm

A run should be scenic and this second annual run/walk on Cannon Beach is exceptional. With the Pacific Ocean stretching into the western horizon and the bluffs and mountains framing the beach’s edge, it is truly a gorgeous place to run or stroll. The 10K loop will be both beautiful and challenging with half the course on the beach and the other half on pavement. The 5K is all beach so runners, casual walkers and dogs (on leashes, please) will all enjoy the sand and surf.

Registration for students is $25 and $50 for adults. The registration fee includes a high quality T-shirt, plus BBQ lunch and live music at the lovely and comfortable Cannon Beach Chamber Community Hall at 2nd and Spruce. It’s all for a good cause–proceeds benefit the Cannon Beach Preschool and Children’s Center (CBPCC). The CBPCC is non profit 501(c)(3) which has been providing quality child care and enriching educational opportunities since 1977. So get out there and run/walk to help local kids!

For folks watching the Rock the Beach race, it will be a nice day out on the beach. Cheer on the runners and walkers and take a wander around the quaint town of Cannon Beach.

The race starts near Second Street, in downtown Cannon Beach right on the beach. For more information, call (503) 436-1040. Links to register online and a full route map are at Note: Registration closes on Thursday October 4, 11:59 PM PST. Be sure to register as soon as you can before the event fills up!
