Otters, sharks and puffins are among the main attractions at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, but on the morning of April 22, humans will take center stage as they compete in the fifth annual Oregon Coast Aquarium 5K & Kids’ Dash.

The 5K is open to all runners whether they are speedy, slow or somewhere in-between.

The Kids’ Dash is for aspiring little athletes ages two to nine years old. Parents are invited to accompany their children on this closed-course 1K run through the Aquarium’s grounds.

Oregon Coast Aquarium 5K & Kids’ Dash runners and walkers receive a race bib, photo, and free admission to the Aquarium for the day.

All proceeds benefit the animal care fund at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

Race entry is $35 for the 5K, and $20 for the Kids’ Dash. A $5 early registration discount is available through March 31. Discounts are also available for Aquarium members.

Race t-shirts are available to preorder for $5. Shirts will also be available for sale on race day, but size availability may be limited.
