The North Olympic Discovery Marathon takes place on a unique point-to-point course that incorporates the beautiful Olympic Discovery Trail with stunning views of the Olympic Mountains and a five-mile finishing stretch along the shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Frequent sightings of seals, eagles, and an array of shore birds are common from the trail. Iconic trestle bridges provide beautiful backdrops. Salmon can be seen spawning at the Morse Creek crossing in the fall. The North Olympic Discovery Marathon is one of the most beautiful marathon venues.

This rails-to-trails course is a wide, hard surface (99% paved) trail. The course is marked at every mile and water stations are located approximately every two miles. Cool June weather can be expected – the average high is 65F, the average low is 49F, and the average mean is 57F. The race is organized by the Port Angeles Marathon Association – a group of accomplished amateur athletes. The Marathon is a USATF-certified course and a Boston Marathon qualifier.
