Race Information

The Oyster Races are USATF certified Half Marathon and 10K with a 5K fun walk/run held annually in Quilcene, WA, to fund scholarships for local students through the Brinnon/Quilcene Dollars for Scholars program. There will be free servings of gourmet grilled oysters and a free locally crafted beer (over 21 yrs) for every runner, plus a beer garden with regional food vendors. The race courses take runners through the beautiful foothills of the Olympic Mountains and along the shoreline of Quilcene Bay.

The races begin and end at Worthington Park, site of the recently restored Victorian-era Worthington Mansion. Great scenery, awesome volunteers, and support for good causes make this a "can't-miss" event!
