ASTORIA — Clam Bucks, a promotion by the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce, are a great way to entice runners/walkers to visit your business around the Great Columbia Crossing 10k.
This year’s event will be held on Sunday, Oct. 14. Clam Bucks will be good from Thursday, Oct. 11 (the first day of race packet pickup) to Wednesday, Oct. 17, allowing participants a full week to use them.
Each of the 3,500 race participants receives five Clam Bucks — worth $1 each — to spend at participating Chamber member restaurants, stores or attractions. After Oct. 17, participating businesses that accepted Clam Bucks can return them to the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce for a refund of $0.50 each.
