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.
