Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

2018 RESULTS --  if you note any issues with results (or have any suggestions for next year) please let me know (runner@runoly.com). Thanks to all who came out to run. Plan on December 21st, 2019 for the 10th annual. Feel free to join us for the 12th annual ROAD-odend-RUN on Saturday, February 16th.

Date & Time: Saturday, December 22nd, 2018. Start time is 9:00 AM. Day of race registration 8:10 – 8:40 AM @ Olympia South Sound Running store

Day of Race Registration and number pick-up:: South Sound Running Store in Olympia -- 3409 Capitol Blvd., Olympia, WA 98501

Race Description: Course will start on Boston St. SE near Olympia South Sound Running store and then turns right onto Deschutes Parkway, down through Tumwater historical park, under the freeway along the trail, right on Deschutes Parkway again, around Capitol Lake and stay on 4th avenue, right on Water Street, right on Columbia, through the State Capitol campus to Water Street again until it rounds the corner and turns into 21st, right on Columbia again, around the corner and over a small triangular grass median to take a right on Capitol Way and finish in front of South Sound Running. After the start of the race it will mostly be an open course not blocked off to traffic, so stay on the sidewalks when possible. 

Awards: Each person who would like to select a gift after the race should bring a wrapped present with a value of about $5. If you cross the finish line first, you get 1st pick of the presents. There will be several more valuable gifts interspersed randomly including shoes donated by South Sound Running. There will be some manner of special awards for the first three overall male and female finishers and masters winners.

Parking/bathrooms: There is ample parking on Custer Way SW by the dysfunctional brewery or at Tumwater Falls Park. There are no bathrooms at the start of the race, but close by in Tumwater Falls Park are the restrooms of choice. These restrooms are about a quarter mile away from the start, and you really will want to go down to the park anyway because it is beautiful.
