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 relax post-race with an amazing view of the Olympic Mountains. The after-party at Extreme Sports Park is a fun atmosphere, and racers will get hot burritos from Little Devil’s Lunchbox and cold drinks, a toasty campfire, and door prizes (woot!). There will be a beer garden at the after-party as well, with proceeds to support 4PA, a local non-profit organization. 

Giving Back

This race is a friendly, community-based event, and a portion of race proceeds is donated to the Peninsula Trails Coalition and the Peninsula Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen of Washington, in appreciation for their countless hours of trail construction and maintenance on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Yay Runner



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.


Runners will get a hot meal after the race at the after-party at Extreme Sports Park. We will have a beer garden, so bring cash / card if you want a frosty beverage (21+) in your swag OAT Run pint glass!  Alternatively we will have non-alcohol beverages to put in your pint glass instead.


We’d rather you didn’t. If you insist, keep the volume low so you can hear course marshals, passing runners, and cougars. If you can’t hear your own footsteps, the volume is too high.

Return Shuttle

From the Finish Line, return shuttles will take you back to your car. The shuttles will run approximately every 20 minutes.



There is plenty of parking at the finish line for those who love to CHEER!

Directions to Finish Line: From Extreme Sports Park, go west on Edgewood Drive for about 1 mile. After a 90-degree turn to the left, you will go 0.2 miles and then turn left onto Elwha River Road. Follow Elwha River Road for 2 miles, then turn right onto Highway 112. In 0.2 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. 


Clothing can be left at the start line, with the start line officials (do not leave on the shuttle). You must bring your own bag with your name on it. Do not leave any clothing along the trail.Your bag will be available at the Finish Line (NOT at Extreme Sports Park) in a tent provided by the Back Country Horsemen Peninsula Chapter, along with another tent for changing.


We love our dogs—and probably yours, too—but please leave them with a trusted dog sitter. Dogs are not allowed at the after-party.
