Join us for a week or a weekend! We are renting the entire Camp Moran from Monday, May 4 until Sunday, May 10 so that you can stay right in the camp. If you prefer less rustic accommodations, you can stay at one of many hotels, B&B's, and resorts on the little island in the San Juans. The park is closest to Eastsound on Orcas Island. This is a great opportunity to really get to know other trail runners!

The trail races explore Moran State Park's many mountain lakes, wooded single track trails, and the 2,409 foot Mount Constitution on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. The trails offer views of the Cascade Mountain range to the east, surrounding islands, and American and Canadian cities. You can see Mount Baker dominating the skyline with its snow capped top rising out of the Cascades. A bank of clouds below the rocky cliff as you summit Mt. Constitution and green islands rising through the clouds like rocks in a wild sea make this race one of the most stunning trail 50 miler/ half and full marathons in the Pacific Northwest. On the summit, there stands a stone observation tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936. The tower offers panoramic views of the sea, islands, mainland, and the Cascades.
