RUN THE PENINSULA: Jamestown S’Klallam run returns Saturday

BLYN — This Saturday afternoon and evening features the final Run the Peninsula event for 2023.

The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe 5K/10K Glow Run will complete the season with the start time at the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal campus at 4:30 p.m.

Approximately 500 runners and walkers are expected to participate in the race along the Olympic Discovery Trail toward Sequim, with the race route having 5K and 10K turnarounds back toward the Jamestown campus.

The event is put on by the Port Angeles Marathon, which also manages the North Olympic Discovery Marathon in June between Blyn and Port Angeles. The event is made possible by title sponsors Peninsula Daily News and the Sequim Gazette, and presenting sponsors Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe and Olympic Medical Center. Proceeds from the event go to several local organizations, including the Peninsula Trails Coalition, which builds and maintains the Olympic Discovery Trail.

Participants are required to wear a headlamp or other type of lighting device for the past-dusk race.

The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe 5K/10K has been permitted by Clallam County to control traffic at trail intersections with county roads, effectively giving pedestrians right-of-way for the race. Drivers are also asked to be especially cautious in the area since the race takes place after dusk. Motorists should be prepared to stop at the following intersections from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.:

• Old Blyn Highway and ODT.

• Dawley Road (ODT Shares this road).

• Schoolhouse Point Lane and ODT.

• Schindler Road and ODT.

• Barker Road and ODT.

There is still space available and people can register at www.runthepeninsula.com. People can email at rtp@runthepeninsula.com with any questions.

Run the Peninsula also puts on the Elwha Bridge run in February, the Sequim Railroad Bridge run in April and the Larry Scott Trail run in October.
