Want to run a gorgeous scenic course on country backroads and along waterfront coastline? Starting near Oak Harbor, a point-to-point rolling course along the eastern shoreline of Whidbey Island, Washinton. The course features views of both the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges and the towering peaks of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker. Expect to see wildlife in the form of deer, bald eagles and possibly Orca whales. Typical weather has been coolish at the start, 40-45, and near 65 by finish. The race finish is in the historic waterfront town of Coupeville. There is nothing like Spring in the Northwest!

Whidbey Island, the perfect Island weekend getaway... leave the city behind... Whidbey Island is approximately one hour north of Seattle, WA.

If you're not up for the whole tamale, do the last 13.1 miles. Not a walk in the park, it's a run/walk on the island. You will be going over the hills and through the dales, and yes, Grandma does live in Coupeville. Do you have the stamina and guts to pay her a visit? Some people will do anything for cookies and milk........

This course is USATF certified and is a Boston Qualifier..

From Canada and points North: Take I-5 to the Anacortes exit. Proceed West on Highway 20 and follow signs to Oak Harbor.

From Seattle and points South: Take I-5 North. You then have the option of taking the Mukilteo ferry (every half hour) across to Whidbey Island and driving up Oak Harbor, or continue North to the Anacortes exit. Proceed West on Highway 20 and follow the signs to Oak Harbor. Whidbey Island is approximately 90 miles north of Seattle.
