Orcas Island 50K
The trail races explore Moran State Park's many mountain lakes, wooded single track trails, and the 2,409 foot Mount Constitution on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. The trails offer views of the Cascade Mountain range to the East, surrounding islands, and American and Canadian cities. You can see Mount Baker dominating the skyline with its snow capped top rising out of the Cascades. A bank of clouds below the rocky cliff as you summit Mt. Constitution and green islands rising through the clouds like rocks in a wild sea make this race one of the most stunning trail runs in the Pacific Northwest. On the summit, there stands a stone observation tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936. The tower offers panoramic views of the sea, islands, mainland, and the Cascades.
It wouldn't be a Rainshadow Running race without the post race party. They will have wood-fired pizza being cooked all day courtesy of Pizza Rocks (vegan and gluten free options available), a big spread of snacks, cold brew coffee provided by series sponsor, Tony's coffee, local beer provided by Island Hoppin' Brewery, kombucha from Island Market, and live bluegrass music courtesy of The Pine Hearts.
