This year, the Oyster Races registered a record 226 runners with 19 youth taking advantage – again for the first time – of the youth registration discount. The objective here was to attract more youth participating and we succeeded. Additionally, the Races grossed over $16K and netted over $9K – more income than any previous year. All race proceeds benefit Quilcene-Brinnon Dollars for Scholars, which provides scholarships to high school seniors and college undergrads, and Count Me In For Quilcene, a non-profit dedicated to enhancing the Quilcene community.
Join us next year and plan to Run, Walk, or Roll – We have events for all ages, great food, local organic oysters and micro brews in our popular and shady beer garden by the pond.
The Quilcene Oyster Half Marathon is a USATF Certified and Sanctioned Event. The course covers 13.11 miles and features views overlooking Hood Canal and Quilcene Bay, plus a peek at the Olympic Mountains.
Brought to you by the Quilcene Oyster Races and hosted by the Quilcene Historical Museum and run by an all volunteer staff, free parking is provided and all services are coordinated with community support for your safety and enjoyment.
This family-friendly race day is presented by Pacific Seafood providing race support and all the delicious, organic local oysters you can eat!
