Clam Scramble 2019 June 15th


We are excited to announce that the 5th  annual  is scheduled for June 15th 2019.  We want to thank you for you past participation in this AMAZING event. We admire all who braved last year’s weather and ran anyway. This year we do have an alternate route in mind in case of rain, mudslides or whatever Mother Nature wants to throw or way.

REGISTRATION is open online at Clam Scramble Registration [click the link]. Please register online if possible. We will only be registering non-paid runner/participants from (7:30am to 8:15 am). Paid runners/participants may pick up their bibs from 8:15 to 8:45. The race starts on the Deep Creek State campground beach on Wayside Dr. at 9:00 am, sharp.

THE COURSE starts on the sandy beachside of Deep Creek campground and quickly plunges you (knee high) into chilly waters where Deep Creek meets the sea. Run the rocky shoreline of Cook Inlet to meet obstacles like the Ring-Around-the-Rocks, the Mud-Crawl and more. Then, head again into the frigid water at Ninilchik River, run around the Ninilchik Harbor and back through Ninilchik Village. Lastly, you’ll climb that pesky little “Staircase to Glory” to the finish line at Ninilchik View State Park Campground. Run, walk or crawl, all ages and levels of competition will find it challenging, rewarding and packed full of fun! There will be an alternate course should weather dictate the need for it, the course will still involve water, mud, obstacles and fun. We are finalizing the details of an alternate course and will let you know the route at a later date.

We are limiting this year’s race to 300 runner/participants. So, register early online to guarantee your spot. The first 100 runners will receive a new 2019 T-shirt. All runners will receive a Clam Scramble shirt (we are going thru eliminating past inventory), along with a bag of fun swag and great information about our local Razor Clam issue, King Salmon issue & other local natural resource literature.

Prizes will be awarded to top three finishing ladies & gents in 6 age classes;

youth-under 12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-55, senior 56 plus.

Prizes total over $1,000.

DUCK RACE: Buy a duck and a chance at winning a cash prize for the first three to cross the finish line!  Purchase your ducky online with registration, at one of our participating businesses: The Inlet View, the Peddler, Twin Rivers Liquor and the Health & Wellness Club.
