The Great Pacific Northwest Challenge is a run, walk or bike challenge that starts in the State Capital of Olympia, Washington and takes you to Port Angeles, returning back to Olympia for a total of 335 Miles. If you complete both stages you will have run, walked or biked around Olympic National Park! That is an awesome achievement and one you can brag about. The event is broken into two stages.
Stage 1 (Bear Section) Olympia to Port Angeles - 120 Miles
Stage 2 (Eagle Section): Port Angeles to Olympia - 215 Miles
For both challenges, start when you want, finish when you want. Do stage 2 first or stage 1 first, it's your choice. After each stage is finished we will mail you, your unique event t-shirt to commemorate your achievement.
T-Shirts are mailed after you complete each stage. It's a great way to celebrate your achievement.
