Location

The Evergreen State College Campus. Registration and packet pickup will be in the Costantino Recreation Center lobby.

Directions.

Parking is available in F Lot (Overhulse and Driftwood) or in the main parking lot (C-Lot) off the Evergreen Parkway.

Course

The course will start and finish in front of the Costantino Recreation Center and takes runners onto the rural roads and bike paths surrounding the campus and follows wide shoulders the majority of the race. The course will be well marked (including mile markers), monitored at intersections and will have water stations at certain points. To reduce encounters with the already minimal car traffic, there will be an out and back section in the last four miles of the course.

Background

The original Geoduck Gallop was established in 1984, but only lasted through the following year. Formerly a pledge run/walk, in 2006 it was re-invented as a Half Marathon and a 10k road run/walk. The race was set up as a qualifying course for Evergreen Track and Field Team members wishing to run the standard for the NAIA National Championships Marathon and opened to the public.

Benefits

We are proud to announce that we will again be joining forces with the Thurston County Food Bank in an effort to address the issue of hunger in our area. In six years, the run has brought in over $2,000 of food donations for the Thurston County Food Bank. Each participant donating a minimum of four items of non-perishable food will receive a photo with Speedy Q. Geoduck. Entry fees will also contribute to the Evergreen Cross Country teams’ fundraising efforts.

*Canned food donations such as canned fruit or meat items (tuna fish, spam, chicken) are especially appreciated.
