Who We Are

Founded in 2013, Peninsula Adventure Sports was created to showcase the Olympic Peninsula as one of the premier outdoor recreation destinations in the country.

With each event, race directors aim to create healthy and fun events at reasonable prices that also benefit the community by creating partnerships, enhancing tourism and boosting the local economy.

A portion of race proceeds is donated to non-profit groups that support local recreational assets or outdoor recreation for youth.

Race Directors

Tim Tucker

Tim Tucker is a Port Angeles / Olympic Peninsula enthusiast who has always in some way been organizing people in the community to have healthy fun. He was with the YMCA for 5 years as the “minister of fun” and Athletic Director.  He has worked at Peninsula College for the past 10 years as Director of Soccer Operations, Assistant Soccer Coach, teaching P.E, running intramurals and many other positions as needed. He is currently working as the Alumni and Development Manager for the Peninsula College Foundation. Tim is also a board member for the Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce and a commissioner on the City of Port Angeles Parks, Recreation, and Beautification Board.

Lorrie Mittmann

Lorrie Mittmann grew up in Wisconsin. After 8 years as a seasonal employee for the National Park Service, she fell in love with the Olympic Peninsula and decided to stay in beautiful Port Angeles. She has a passion for trails and outdoor recreation, which leads her to promote and perform volunteer trail work. For 5 years, Lorrie worked for Clallam County as the Volunteer Coordinator for the Olympic Discovery Trail, and led trail construction of the then-new Adventure Trail. She was the Stewardship Director at North Olympic Land Trust for 12 years, and during that time founded Peninsula Adventure Sports.

Our Team

Some of our races are quite logistically complex, and need a whole team to direct the race. We appreciate their dedication.
