San Juan Island Half Marathon
May 20, 2023 @ 6:30 am - 12:30 pm PDT
An event every year that begins at 6:30 am on day third of May, repeating until May 18, 2024
The course for the San Juan Island Half is unique and is easily the most scenic Orca Running race.
It starts at South Beach inside San Juan Island National Historic Park and finishes at Jackson Beach, just south of Friday Harbor. Along the way you’ll get some amazing view of the other islands, the Olympic Mountains, and of course, the Salish Sea.
It has a bit of climbing spread throughout the run, with three main climbs, from miles o to 1.6, 3 to 5.3, and 9 to 10.8. The total elevation gain is about 900′.
Participants will pass aid stations well stocked with water and calories at miles 1.1, 2.2, 4.3, 8.1, and 10.3.
