With each event, race directors aim to create healthy and fun events at reasonable prices that also benefit the community by creating partnerships, enhancing tourism and boosting the local economy.
A portion of race proceeds is donated to non-profit groups that support local recreational assets or outdoor recreation for youth.

Lorrie Mittmann grew up in Wisconsin. After 8 years as a seasonal employee for the National Park Service, she fell in love with the Olympic Peninsula and decided to stay in beautiful Port Angeles. She has a passion for trails and outdoor recreation, which leads her to promote and perform volunteer trail work. For 5 years, Lorrie worked for Clallam County as the Volunteer Coordinator for the Olympic Discovery Trail, and led trail construction of the then-new Adventure Trail. She was the Stewardship Director at North Olympic Land Trust for 12 years, and during that time founded Peninsula Adventure Sports.
Some of our races are quite logistically complex, and need a whole team to direct the race. We appreciate their dedication.
