Visiting Southwest Washington

Washington’s Pacific coast community of Ocean Shores is the Evergreen State’s top beach destination. After filling Point Brown Peninsula with spring arts and fun, summer events launch in June with the Festival of Colors Kite Fly, and the Sand & Sawdust Festival. Ocean Shores Family Fourth Festival is an ideal destination for 4th of July fun and activities.

Athletes of multiple disciplines gather July 12th and 13th for the Ocean Shores Tri & Foot Fest. The weekend features at least eleven racing events including the Toughman Half Washington Ocean Shores Triathlon. North Bay Park is the start and finish for competitions including the triathlon, duathlon, running, and aquabike challenges.

Southern Washington’s community of Washougal draws summer motocross fans to America’s Most Scenic Raceway, Washougal MX Park. Set in the rolling hills and forests of southwestern Washington, Washougal Park kicks off 2014 with the new Muscle Milk Route 7 Series. With the series start in April, the route 7 series continues through summer ending in September with the 2-Stroke Dream Race on September 14th and the September 28th MMR7S make-up day.

Travelers looking for a personal challenge, sign up for the August 2nd Reebok Spartan Race at Washougal MX Park. The 2014 Pac West Spartan Sprint features an obstacle racing challenge, taking participants through mud, fire, water, and barbed wire, along with surprise elements along the way. The course is 4-miles of fun, or living hell depending on your perspective. Five start times are available with 200 athlete slots.

Vancouver Washington, called the Hidden Gem of the Northwest, launches summer 2014 with the Vancouver USA Marathon on June 15th. Events begin at Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver, with scenic courses along the Columbia River, past historic Vancouver sites. Along with the marathon, races include a half marathon, kids marathon, and Freedom 5k. In conjunction with Vancouver USA Marathon, the Vancouver Summer Brewfest runs Friday through Sunday.

The Clark County Event Center, 9 miles north of Vancouver, hosts the 2014 Clark County Fair August 1st through 10th. Called Clark County’s best summer party, the 2014 fair theme is Make a Splash. The fun includes Tuff Trucks, Monster Tucks, Demolition Derby, Bull Riding, and Mutton Bustin’ – entertainment for everyone in the family.
