The Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. Frosty Moss HQ is based in Port Angeles, where the mountains greet the sea. The course follows the Olympic Discovery Trail AND the Adventure Route.
Frosty Moss Relay runners trace the Olympic Discovery Trail (paved multiuse path) and Adventure Route (singletrack trail) from west to east, beginning at the Camp Creek Trailhead along the Sol Duc River and finishing in Blyn at the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe facilities.
Frosty Moss Relay consists of 15 legs in a mix of distances (3.2 to 10 miles) on pavement and trail. Paved legs are mostly on former railroad grade, meaning relatively flat with some rolling hills. The Adventure Route is hilly dirt singletrack, not overly technical, plus a few miles of gravel road at the beginning
Teams are welcome to divide the legs among runners as they like, but a runner may not run consecutive/back-to-back legs.
Along the way, you’ll experience the best of the Olympic Peninsula:
-Towering evergreens and vivid green moss and ferns
-Sol Duc River, Lake Crescent, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca
-Olympic National Park and the Spruce Railroad Trail
-Views of the Olympic Mountains to the south and Vancouver Island to the north
-The wild and free Elwha River
-Miles of waterfront in Port Angeles
