2010 Orcas Island 50K & 25K Race

Ohana Friends,

We just discovered one heck of an opportunity to pack your bags and head to Orcas Island. The Orcas Island 25K & 50K race was held this past February with plans to continue next year. Runners from all over the area flocked to Orcas Island for a race that’s certainly not for the faint of heart.

Race creator, James Varner remarks, “I’ve been running and organizing ultras for almost a decade and the folks I’ve met along the way have become some my best friends. I approach directing races from the idea that I’m throwing a party for friends that just happens to involve running in the mountains.”

About The Course

Beautiful soft and well maintained single track trails through old growth forest with waterfalls, lakes, cascading creeks, and views of the Puget Sound, the surrounding islands, and on clear days the Cascade and Olympic Mountain Ranges, including Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier and Mt. St Helens.

Here’s a course map detailing the twists and turns. Learn more about the race here.
