April 1, 2020

We know that you are all wondering if the 2020 North Olympic Discovery Marathon will proceed on Sunday, June 7. We are hoping for the best, but we are currently planning for all sorts of outcomes. As of April 1, 2020 we are not canceling the race. We remain optimistic.

Currently, Washington State Governor, Jay Inslee, has a “stay-at-home” order. This tells us that our government needs more time to understand the results of the “stay at home” and social distancing order. The “stay-at-home” order is still in the original 2-week timeframe and the government needs to see if this order is successfully flattening the curve.

We will be sending out weekly updates on the status of the June 7, 2020 North Olympic Discovery Marathon. You can also check for updates on our website:

We are continuing to monitor this ever-changing situation and will follow recommendations from the CDC and state and local authorities to ensure the health and safety of both participants and staff.

As of March 22, the race is still on as scheduled (June 7th, 2020), although that is subject to change, based on outside developments and decisions from city officials. We hope to achieve more clarity in this regard by the end of this month.

In the meantime, let’s all do our part to limit the spread of the virus by practicing social distancing and good hygiene. Stay healthy, keep washing your hands, and go for a run in the fresh air!
