CHRC promotes running for health and fitness on the central Oregon Coast, for runners of every fitness level and ability. We are an active club and members get together to run just about every day of the week. Come join us at one of our club runs, check out the activities we offer, or sign up for one of our club-sponsored races.


The Coast Hills Running Club serves communities along the Oregon Coast, mainly those near Newport and Lincoln City. In addition to providing group run opportunities, the Coast Hills Running Club hosts races including the Coast Festival Run in February (in conjunction with the Seafood and Wine Festival), the Loyalty Days Run in May, and the Free Flight Run in October; and supports events like the Newport Marathon. We also have a summer training series starting in mid-June; club picnic runs; monthly First Saturday runs, and a winter trail run series. Groups also form around training for a specific event, such as the Newport Marathon and the Lincoln City Half Marathon in March.

The purpose of the club is to help connect runners in the Lincoln County/central coast area for running activities. CHRC can provide a runner new to the area contacts for running groups and running routes around Newport. Membership is open to all age groups and all paces, and walkers are welcome!

Coast Hills Running Club is a member of the Road Runners Club of America which is the national association of running clubs, running events, and runners dedicated to promoting running as a competitive sport and as healthful exercise. The RRCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
