Orcas Island 50k

On February 4, 2017, our teammate, Scarlett Graham took 3rd at the sold out Orcas Island 50k. The 50k “is unique in the trail running world, with old-growth forests, tough climbs, and spectacular views of the surrounding islands, mountains and Puget Sound – but what truly sets it apart is the chance to hang out all weekend on a gorgeous island with your trail runner friends.” 4307966

Scarlett took 3rd with a finishing time of 5:39:26. 2nd place was Kaytlyn Gerbin with a time of 5:31:29, and 1st place female was Rachel Drake in 5:29:45. The course, already a wonderful challenge, featured snow and snow muck, which made for slippery conditions.

The 50k’s post race party is always killer, with Pizza Jim & Co. pizzas, a big spread of snacks, cold brew coffee, Island Hoppin’ brews and live bluegrass music courtesy of the Pine Hearts.
