OAT Run is brought to you by Title Sponsor Darn Tough of Vermont. 

We want to welcome Darn Tough Vermont Socks to the Peninsula Adventure Sports family - they will be the Title Sponsor of OAT Run 2023! We’ve been wearing Darn Tough for years.  They are perfect for wet-season running in the Pacific Northwest. Merino wool helps keep your feet warm even if they get wet. Made in the USA and have a lifetime guarantee. We encourage you to give them a try while training for OAT Run and during the race! We will have some at the race for awards and door prizes!

* 50K * Half Marathon * 12K *

The Olympic Adventure Trail Run (OAT Run) is a point-to-point trail 12K and half marathon as well as an out-and-back 50K that traverses Kelly Ridge between the Olympic National Park and the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Washington State, all on single-track trail. 

The OAT Run Experience

OAT Run is for trail runners who enjoy lush green forests filled with moss and ferns, towering evergreens, and spring trailside flowers. Runners will get a stunning view of the Elwha River Valley as they run by the “Living Room”. And if this wasn’t epic enough, get ready to eat, drink, and party with an amazing view of the Olympic Mountains. The folks at Extreme Sports Park provide a relaxed and fun atmosphere, and racers will get hot food and cold drinks (in a custom OAT Run pint glass), a toasty campfire, and door prizes (woot!)
