The Oyster Half-Marathon winds through the hills overlooking Hood Canal and Quilcene Bay. The route starts at Worthington Park, crosses the Little Quilcene river, passes several farms then heads uphill.

A gravel road takes runners through forest land to a ridge road with panoramic views of Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains, winding back down to a nearly flat run around Quilcene Bay to the finish back at the park.
The half-marathon fee is $60 plus fees.
The Oyster 10K Race is a 6.17-mile course through forest and farmland designed for the intermediate runner, while the Oyster 5K Race (formerly called the Ranger Run) is a flat jog or stroll along Quilcene Bay.
