Orcas Island, San Juan Islands, Washington State

Welcome to Orcas Island! Orcas is one of many of islands in the San Juan chain of islands in Northwester Washington State. Our uniquely beautiful courses traverse some of the most pristine landscapes in the northwest. Short course and solo athletes will be treated to a 10-mile course consisting of 6 run and 5 swim segments. Long course athletes will be challenged a bit more having to conquer a course nearly 20-miles in length comprised of 11 run and 10 swim segments.

Along the way all swimrun athletes will find themselves staring down big climbs and descents, weaving in and out of curvy single track trail running through thick forests, and leaping into serine crystal clear bodies of water both in the inland lakes as well as a picturesque ocean cove. Whether it’s a 15’ jump in to Cascade Lake or the 2-mile climb to the top of Mt. Constitution, Odyssey SwimRun Orcas Island will leave you with a lasting impression of nature, the way it was meant to be experienced.

SPONSORS

Sponsors play an important roll in helping events like these to continue for years to come. Without volunteers, sponsors, local support, and registrations, these races would not exist. We work every day to form valuable relationships with local (and national) companies to expand the boundaries of our events, offer more to the athletes, and help these generous sponsors grow their business. We stand behind our sponsors and would never recommend a product to the athletes/public we haven’t had our own positive experiences with. We hope, whenever possible, you join us in giving these great businesses your patronage.
