OAT Run Runner Instructions

Thank you for registering for the 8th annual Olympic Adventure Trail Run! We’re excited to bring this event to you again this year, and we appreciate your support. Please take note of the following pre-run information that you should take a look at before the big day:


Packets can be picked up at two different times:

  • Friday, June 19, from 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at Harbinger Winery, 2359 Highway 101 West in Port Angeles.
  • Saturday, June 20, starting at 7:45 a.m., also at Harbinger Winery. On Saturday, you will need to arrive far enough ahead of your run to pick the packet up and be on the shuttle bus by the appropriate time. 8:45 a.m. for the half marathon, and 10:00 a.m. for the 12K.

WE ENCOURAGE you to please do the Friday night packet pickup if at all possible. It will help things to work better on Saturday morning, PLUS it will be super fun to come to Harbinger on Friday for happy hour to get your packet and maybe hang out in the tasting room for a bit!


OAT Run Packet Pickup at Harbinger Winery

Harbinger Winery
2358 HWY 101 WEST
Port Angeles, WA 98363

It is required that you take a shuttle bus to the start line, no exceptions. The shuttle will leave from Harbinger Winery, 2358 Highway 101 West in Port Angeles. The run courses are one-way, and then a shuttle will take you from the finish line back to Harbinger, where there will be a hot meal and beer! (all included in your registration fee).
Hey all you locals, please carpool to Harbinger Winery if at all possible so as not to overload her parking lot—thank you!
Are dogs allowed in the race? Are walkers allowed in the race? Unfortunately the answer is no to both of these – we are sorry we cannot accommodate at this time.

There is some parking available at the finish line (please carpool if possible).

Directions to Finish Line: From Harbinger Winery, go west on Highway 101 for 2 miles. Turn right onto Highway 112. After 2.2 miles, turn left onto Dan Kelly Road. In 0.8 miles the Horse Trailer Parking lot will be on the left (follow the brown sign) under the power lines. Go through the first parking lot to the second one—the location of the Finish Line.
There are green metal mile markers along the route. These are the normal mile markers for the trail. These markers are accurate for the races, but you will use them to see how many miles you have left, not how many miles you have already gone.
There will be Sanicans at the starts and finish, and there will be one at the half-way point of the half marathon.

Clothing can be left at the start line, but you must bring your own bag with your name on it. Do not leave any clothing along the trail. YOUR CLOTHING WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE FINISH LINE.

There will be snacks and water at the start line of the 12K, which is also mile 6 of the half marathon. In addition, there will be snacks and water at mile 4 of the 12K, which is also mile 10 of the half marathon. There will also be snacks and water at the finish line, and a full meal at Harbinger Winery after the race. If you feel you need additional water during the race, please carry it with you.

During the race, the trail will be open to the public. That means bikers and horses in addition to other hikers or runners. Bikers are supposed to yield to runners, but that does not always happen. So please be aware of it. Runners are supposed to yield to horses. If you encounter a horse, please step off the trail to the downhill side.

We are currently doing outreach to the main horse group in the area and they are getting the word out about the run. The horse club will also have people stationed at the horse parking area to encourage any horse riders to try a different trail that day. Point is, we should not see any horses during the race, but no guarantees. So be prepared.

12K OAT Run

The 12K event is actually 7.25 miles and not the official 7.45 distance. There is an aid station at the start, at mile 4, and at the finish. There are Sanicans at the start and finish, but not along the course.
