Orcas Island 50Mi | Marathon | Half Marathon

May 11 - May 12

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day second of May, repeating until May 13, 2023

The trail races explore Moran State Park’s many mountain lakes, wooded single track trails, and the 2,409 foot Mount Constitution on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. The trails offer views of the Cascade Mountain range to the East, surrounding islands, and American and Canadian cities. You can see Mount Baker dominating the skyline with its snow capped top rising out of the Cascades. A bank of clouds below the rocky cliff as you summit Mt. Constitution and green islands rising through the clouds like rocks in a wild sea make this race one of the most stunning trail 50 miler/ half and full marathons in the Pacific Northwest. On the summit, there stands a stone observation tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936. The tower offers panoramic views of the sea, islands, mainland, and the Cascades.

Cut off times are for your safety as well as for our volunteers. We can only expect our volunteers to be out so long. By signing up for this race you agree to our cut off times. If you do not make the cut off time, you must stop and get a ride to the finish. You may have to wait until the aid station closes to get a ride from the volunteers. Thank you for understanding.
