With spectacular Haystack Rock as a backdrop, the Rock The Beach5K-10K Run is a “go” for Saturday, May 31.

The event benefits the Cannon Beach Preschool and Children’s Center, a nonprofit organization serving North Coast families. Pre-registration is available at www.cbchildren.org

The event will begin with a spaghetti dinner Friday, May 30. All registered participants receive access to the dinner at Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce Community Hall, 207 Spruce St.

On Saturday, check-in starts at 7:15 a.m. at the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce. The 5K-10K run begins at 8:30 a.m.; the course takes full advantage of the local scenery with on-the-beach starts and finishes. The 10K run begins on the beach and continues through Cannon Beach’s town center before returning to the beach. The 5K course has a beach-side layout from start to finish.

Cannon Beach Preschool and Children’s Center serves primarily working class families and focuses on the care and education for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Much of the center’s funding comes from grants, donations and fundraisers.
