Carry your favorite method of hydration and some energy grub! Have fun! Watch for Orcas, seals, sea lions, and bald eagles.

This is a low key event. A fun race/training run that counts towards Marathon Maniacs/Half Fanatics and other tallies. We will record times on Ultra Signup. The course will be open until 5 pm. Early start is available to those who want it.

There are 6 bathrooms along the course. Water fountains are shut off for the winter. You should carry water/electrolyte and gels you might need.  We will have an aid station at the start/finish and at the turnaround, stocked with delicious ultra fare.

This course is open to traffic so stay on the sidewalk, watch for dogs, keep your eyes peeled and exercise caution. 

Drop bags can be left at the start/finish.

Run your distance then hang out at Shelter #3 to cheer folks on and enjoy the views! We will have food and goodies at the finish.  If you want to, bring some goodies for the finish line.
