Race the Wave 5k Fun Run/Walk

The event is hosted by Cannon Beach Oregon on September 28th and is a fun way to learn about tsunami preparedness. The 5k fun run/walk follows an actual evacuation route, starting at the beach and ending on higher ground at an evacuation meeting point where the community will be hosting a preparedness fair. Participants will learn how to be disaster aware and how to take actions to prepare for emergencies.  Anyone who is interested is encouraged to come participate in the event.
