Join us in celebrating our 10 year anniversary with a weekend filled with running, biking and swimming race events!
The Ocean Shores Tri & Foot Fest hosts no fewer than eleven race events, including a half iron relay, half iron triathlon, a Olympic relay triathlon, a Olympic and sprint triathlon, a half iron and Olympic distance Duathlon (Bike/Run) a 13.1-mile half marathon, a 10K and a 5K race, and a triathlon for kids.
For the participants and families of the participants who flock to this beach community along the Washington coastline very summer, dating back to the events first running in the summer of 2006, they are sure to have plenty of options.

runners out for a roughly mile-and-a-half stretch along the beach in the
races first few miles. After heading back onto the roadway, runners
then head down to the peninsulas southern end, where they make their
way around the edges of the Oyhut Wildlife Recreation Area along the
shore, and then head north along the shoreline of North Bay before
making their way back to the finish line at North Bay Park.
Triathletes share the same run course, swim in Duck Lake and are
presented with a bike ride along scenic roads with the occasional deer
on the side of the roads, as well as views of the ocean. With the
