The 5K and Kids Marathon are an out-and-back along the shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. *NOTE in 2021 the 10K will be an out and back.

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

  5. Marathon Walk

    The North Olympic Discovery Marathon is pleased to welcome the walker as an integral part of the best boutique marathon in North America. We strive to provide each participant with all of the services and assistance equally regardless of pace or place. That being said, we want to take this opportunity to provide you with all of the information you need to make your Marathon Walk the best experience possible. We have based our start times and water station operating times on a 15 minute per mile (4 miles per hour) walker. Flexibility for faster and slower paces have been built in to accommodate the natural variations that will occur. Special Instructions Please carry the food and drink that you will need for the first eight miles of your walk. The first water stop will be at mile 8. After mile 8, we anticipate that the Marathon runners will be joining you and the marathon course and water stations will be in complete operation. For the first 8 miles, early start walkers will need to follow the course marking signs and stay on the Olympic Discovery Trail.

  7. Kids Marathon

    Kids are an important part of Marathon weekend. Participants from all over the United States and many countries come to the Olympic Peninsula to run in the Marathon. These adults train all year long to be in shape to run the distance. Kids have the opportunity to run their own marathon! Using the NODM mileage log, kids track 25 miles for 6 -10 weeks leading up to Marathon weekend. They set their own weekly goals, record their miles and earn rewards. Generally we run the last 1.2 miles the day before the marathon however this year the kids will complete the last 1.2 miles on their own. Our mission is to promote kids’ health and fitness and to promote the marathon weekend as a family festival.
