New Hobuck Beach Race

A new Makah Coast race makes its debut September 29th at Hobuck Beach near Neah Bay.

The Makah Coast Race is a 6 mile ocean human powered paddling and rowing race on Makah Bay on the Makah Indian Reservation September 29th. Racers start on Hobuck Beach and go through the surf to an outer reef, then to the south end of the bay, around a picturesque sea stack, back to the reef and back through the surf to the beach. Like many beach events, racers will run a short distance to the finish line.  

Nearby Cape Flattery is the most northwesterly corner of the Lower 48 US and Washington State. Makah Bay is known for its surf, beaches and access to Olympic National Park’s Shi Shi Beach.  Click here for directions and lodging info.
