The Orcas Island 25k is unique in the trail running world, with old-growth forests, tough climbs, and spectacular views of surrounding islands, mountains, and Puget Sound. Orcas Island is known to be a bit magical and after running on these trails, with the beautiful fir trees, moss covered rocks, gently rolling creeks and hidden waterfalls, we think they are pretty magical as well!
This loop course has approximately 4450 ft of elevation gain and has two fully stocked aid stations, at miles 5.6 and 10.7. Runners will have 6 hours to complete the course.
The lottery will be open from July 1st, 2019 to July 10th, 2019. Any runner interested in participating in the race needs to add their name to the lottery during this period. Once the lottery closes on July 10th, we will draw names and announce the results no later than July 15th. If you are interested in registering as a group, please visit the Orcas 25K page on our website (www.rainshadowrunning.com) for more info!
Once the lottery is processed, the race will be sold out and there will be no additions after that point.
Post Race Festivities
None of the Rainshadow Running events offer finisher medals, but instead we put that money towards free beer (and non alcoholic drinks), free handmade pizza, and live music for all runners, their friends and family, and volunteers. We strive to create a sense of community where runners can stick around, share trail stories, and cheer on their fellow runners. The finish line party does not end until the sweeps come through!
Local time: 9:20 PM
If you would like to add on a technical or thrift store style shirt with the race logo, you can do so during registration or click the STORE button above to add one on up to 45 days before the race!
