Course:

Marathon

The Full Marathon starts with the same course as the Half-Marathon. The course starts at the Eagles Association building immediately south of Orting Park. It passes by a large farmland, then starts along the river. After crossing over the main road between Orting and South Prairie, it crosses over the beautiful river and provides a steller picture of Mt Rainier on a clear day! It carries on in a general uphill route to South Prairie, where there are two (2) road crossings. Then it crosses the river while leaving South Prairie, and starts a steeper uphill over 4 more bridges (one quite high off the river bed). The route continues a steady uphill until about one mile before the turn-around in the city of Buckley, just pass the Buckley community park on Hwy 410. Then, you turn around and have a brisk downhill back to the finish line in Orting. You may walk, jog, race or Wheelchair/Hand Crank this event, and it is a Boston Qualifying course. It is a USATF certified course.

Half Marathon

The course starts at the Eagles Association building immediately south of Orting Park. It passes by a large farmland, then starts along the river. After crossing over the main road between Orting and South Prairie, it crosses over the beautiful river and provides a steller picture of Mt Rainier on a clear day! It carries on about a half mile before South Prairie, along the river and beautiful wetland areas, and then meets the turn-around, back to the finish/start line. You may walk, jog, race, or Wheelchair/Hand Crank this event! It is a USATF certified half marathon course.

5K

This course starts at the Eagles Association building immediately south of Orting Park. It passes by a large farmland, then starts along the river. After just over a mile along the river, the turn-around takes you back to the finish/start line. You may walk, jog, race, or Wheelchair/Hand Crank this event! It is a USATF certified course.

Kids Color Run

This course will be an obstacle course on the east side of Orting Foothills Trail, starting at the Starting line, and winding around to the skate park where it will go back and forth in grass, gravel and on pavement up and over several dirt hills. There will be many support staff and parents involved in covering participants with powdered colors of all kinds, along with getting wet (weather permitting). It may go by the fire station and police department where staff may be on-hand to participate in some surprising ways! It will then wind back around and finish at the finish line of the marathon. You may walk, jog, or race this event, but the course is not able to accommodate Wheelchairs/Hand cranks. If those with wheelchairs/Hand cranks sign up to participate, they will be able to complete the section of the race that is on pavement, and accommodations will be made
