Welcome to the Green Season on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State
Towering evergreens. Endless moss and ferns. Miles of waterfront. Snowcapped mountains. Need a cure for gray-season blues? Frosty Moss has you covered.

THE FROSTY MOSS EXPERIENCE
Frosty Mossers trace the Olympic Discovery Trail (paved multiuse path) & Adventure Route (singletrack trail) from west to east, beginning at the Camp Creek Trailhead along the Sol Duc River and finishing in Blyn at Sequim Bay. Mini Mossers follow the Olympic Discovery Trail from Ediz Hook in Port Angeles to Blyn at Sequim Bay.
You will be asked to choose your wave based on the average pace of your team (minutes / mile). Be as accurate as possible. Do NOT pad your time because you are worried about making the cutoffs. If you run faster than your average pace and beat the exchange zone volunteers, you will be held and made to wait. You do not have anything to gain by padding your average pace! There will be some ability to change team pace later (possible if team members are changed out, etc.), if a wave is not yet filled.
The team captain and 50K solo runners must attend the check-in/orientation at 7 Cedars Resort on Friday evening, February 25th. Your team can come with you, but only the team captain is required.
Make sure to book your room(s) at 7 Cedars Resort - you can walk to your room right from the after party! Watch the website for special Frosty Moss rates (which are really really good!)
