Race Preview: ÖDYSSEY Swimrun Orcas Island

ÖDYSSEY Swimrun’s Orcas Island returns this weekend for its 4th edition, a rugged course on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Participants will gather in the beautiful Moran State Park to take on the trails, dirt roads and unique swims which will see sections through freshwater and salt water.

There are two distances offered, the full course is just over 40km long (35km running, 5.5km swimming) and the short course covers a distance of 20km (17km running and 3.2km swimming).

For more information about America’s original series, read our interview below with Race Director, Lars.
