September 26 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT
An event every year that begins at 7:00 am on day last of September, repeating until September 28, 2024
This is an amazing multi-sport race that showcases all that is beautiful and bad-ass of the Olympic Peninsula – mountain biking the Foothills trail, kayaking the inner harbor, road riding the countryside, and running on the Waterfront Trail – solo or as a team. Top this with a super-fun after party including live music, beer garden, and FREE salmon bake for all participants and volunteers sponsored by the Elwha River Casino.
This event is a MUST DO.
A four-leg test of endurance, strength and tenacity intertwined with the beauty of the North Olympic Peninsula. From the foothills of the Olympic Mountains to the shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Relay Teams and individuals in the Iron Division gather from far and wide to explore Port Angeles in Washington State and its incredible surroundings via bike, kayak and foot.
Participants begin on mountain bikes and ride 16.5 miles on logging roads, single-track trails and pavement before reaching the Waterfront Park in downtown Port Angeles. From the beach, participants’ kayak 3 miles, embark on a 30-mile road bike journey and endure a 10-kilometer run along one of the jewels of the area, the scenic Olympic Discovery Trail.
The Big Hurt is open to participants age 15 and over. Big Hurt participants can race solo in Iron Division or as a relay team of 2 to 4 persons in the team Division. Top 3 male and female and top 3 teams in each team division will receive an award. Each participant who registers before August 31, 2020, will receive a Big Hurt t-shirt.
A portion of event proceeds are donated to the Peninsula Trails Coalition, a local non-profit organization dedicated to the construction, maintenance, and promotion of the Olympic Discovery Trail and Olympic Adventure Trail.
The Big Hurt event central, or Hub, is located in downtown Port Angeles at the Pebble Beach Park at the intersection of Oak Street and Railroad Avenue.
