Funds to help with ongoing trail signage program

PORT ANGELES — Members of the Port Angeles Marathon Association have donated an additional $5,529 to the Olympic Trails Coalition for the Olympic Discovery Trail.

The funds were proceeds from the 17th annual North Olympic Discovery Marathon on June 2, in which more than 380 runners participated.

Trail signage

“These funds will be of major help to our ongoing trail signage program, for maintenance activities like the Dean’s Creek Bridge repair, and for growing our trail maintenance equipment capabilities,” said Jeff Bohman, president of the Olympic Trails Coalition.

The Port Angeles Marathon Association (PAMA), a nonprofit organization, supports the Olympic Discovery Trail that marathoners run on.

The organization also puts on the new Run the Peninsula series.

Olympic Discovery Trail is maintained by the Peninsula Trails Coalition, an all-volunteer group that helps to build, protect, grow and maintain the trail.

For more information about the Olympic Discovery Trail, go to olympicdiscoverytrail.org/ donate.

Registration for the 18th annual North Olympic Discovery Marathon on June 7, 2020, is currently open.
