Hundreds of runners take on Larry Scott Trail

High-schoolers, locals among 264 live-event entrants

PORT TOWNSEND — Athletes from the North Olympic Peninsula shined in the third annual Larry Scott Trail 5K/10K/half-marathon Run on Saturday.

A total of 264 racers ran on race day, taking advantage of the first live Larry Scott Trail event in two years.

Another 1,301 people from all 50 states have registered to run the race virtually. The virtual race is still open for registration at

The Larry Scott Trail Run is the fourth of five Run the Peninsula races, sponsored by the Peninsula Daily News and Sequim Gazette and presented by Jefferson Healthcare and Olympic Medical Center.

Race director Victoria Jones said the weather was windy, but the route was protected from the wind.

Three of the winners are high school students in Port Townsend and Port Angeles. One of them, Leia Larson, is an eighth-grader at Stevens Middle School.

Jason Hect of Redmond won the men’s half-marathon with a time of 1 hour, 18 minutes and 51 seconds.

Although there were runners from all around western Washington and as far away as Oregon, Hect was the only non-Peninsula-area winner.

Finishing second in the men’s half-marathon was Port Townsend City Manager John Mauro, who crossed the line in 1:23.03.

The women’s half-marathon winner was Port Angeles’ Elizabeth Boyden, who won in 1:49.29.

For the 36th time the Port Angeles Firefighters and volunteers along with Santa will be having their Operation Candy Cane. They missed last year because of COVID restrictions so this year they are back with the same desire to help those less fortunate. And this year they have added two days to their campaign. The first six days they will follow their usual path throughout Port Angeles with their siren and music going handing out candy canes in exchange for cans of food or money for the local foot banks. The last two days they will be outside of PA for two nights sitting at Roosevelt school and Dry Creek school for two hours each.
