    Just curious when you expect to make decisions on the wait list, some of the reservations had a 14-day cancellation. No pressure, just curious so I know if I have to beg for a little leeway.

    I and a couple friends are coming from Denver to run the race, what is the best way to get to the ferry and to the island? Thanks!

      The Ferry Leaves from the Anacortes, WA ferry terminal and takes about an hour to get to the island. The schedule can be found at the WSDOT website - http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Ferries/Schedule/ScheduleDetail.aspx?tripdate=20130202&departingterm=1&arrivingterm=15&roundtrip=true. If you can come up the day before you'll have more leeway, but if you're heading over day of you need to get the very first boat @ 5:35AM to make the start time. I've heard of some Ultra-folks sleeping in the waiting line in their cars the night before to ensure a spot on the sailing.<br /><br />Once you're on the island its about a 20 minute drive out to Camp Moran (take a left off the dock and you can pretty much take the same road the whole way). If you hit Olga you've gone too far. But the Driving directions link on the event website can give you a better blow by blow (http://orcas50k.blogspot.com/p/info.html). Happy Running, and hope you enjoy the wonderful Orcas Trails. See you there!
