Geoduck Gallop Half Marathon 2020
Race Technical Difficulty Score (RTDS) =3
Join us in Olympia Washington at the Evergreen State College for this annual half-marathon and 10K race. The Half course is USATF Certified.The original Geoduck Gallop was a pledge run/walk in 1984 and 1985. In 2006 it was re-invented as a Half Marathon and a 10K road run/walk. The race was set up as a qualifying course for Evergreen Track and Field Team members wishing to run the standard for the NAIA National Championships Marathon and opened to the public.
Registration and packet pickup will be in the Costantino Recreation Center lobby on the campus of The Evergreen State College. Free parking is available; lots C and F are closest to the CRC (maps and directions).
Both courses start and finish in front of the Costantino Recreation Center and take runners onto the rural roads and bike paths surrounding the campus. The course follows wide shoulders the majority of the race and consists of rolling hills. The course will be well marked (including mile markers), monitored at intersections and will have aid stations for water and sports drink.
