This race is likely the hardest half and full marathon in Washington State. The course takes you on beautiful trails through Capitol Forest outside of Olympia. Steep climbs, technical trails, lots of mud, beautiful views... you'll have to work hard for this finish. All finishers get a beer stein.

Want a technical race shirt? You must register before February 10 if you want to order a t-shirt with your registration. Technical running shirts are male/female sized. If you do not order by the deadline, swag will be available, on a first-come/first served basis, for purchase on race day (cash or check only): trucker hats - $15; technical shirts - $30.

All finishers will receive a custom beer stein! Bring it to the Fish Tale Brew Pub after the race and enjoy 10% off your meal.
