NEWPORT The annual Newport Marathon and the inaugural Newport Half Marathon takes place Saturday, with walkers starting at 6 a.m. and runners starting at 7 a.m. from Yaquina Bay State Park.

The course takes participants through Nye Beach before winding back through the state park, down along the Bayfront and then out and back on Yaquina Bay Road. The finish line is located in the parking lot at Oregon Coast Bank, across from the Embarcadero.

Spectators can cheer on runners along the course, however, the eastbound lane of Yaquina Bay Road will be closed to traffic until noon. People can drive to Toledo via Highway 20 and then travel west toward Newport on Yaquina Bay Road.
