Día de Los Muertos (DDLM) is a day in the year like no other. This deeply revered Mexican tradition provides a universal opportunity to celebrate our connection to loved ones passed on and the ancestors whose lives allowed ours to happen.

The DDLM Endurance Run celebrates the power of this tradition and each runner’s personal power and hard-earned endurance.


The start/finish line will be adorned with a special addition: an ofrenda (altar). Before starting their race, runners can visit the ofrenda to leave offerings that honor their ancestors and loved ones passed on. These offerings of photos, flowers, fruits, drinks, trinkets, and written messages provide runners the opportunity to add a unique layer of depth, gratitude, and purpose to their endurance run from start to finish.

See our course info page for Aid station, drop bags, pacer information


The race is held at the South Beach State Park in Newport, OR located just south of the Yaquina Bay Bridge.

There's plenty of free parking in the Day Use Parking lot. You'll have to walk approx. 800ft from the parking lot to get to the starting line. If you have items to drop off at the starting line, follow directions to the Nine Hole Disc Golf Course. No parking is allowed at the Nice Hole Disc Golf Course. You must drive back and park at the Day Use Parking lot.


The overall male and female winner from each race will receive an award.


All finishers who complete 100 or 50 miles will receive a 50 Mile or 100 Mile Belt Buckle. Since our race is still small and new it's tough to guesstimate how many runners will complete 100 or 50 miles so we'll have the belt buckles made after the race and they will be mailed to you.


All participants who complete a minimun of 26.2 miles will also receive a finisher medal
