In 2013 the Buckley to Orting (B&O) Half Marathon was separated from the
Rainier to Ruston Rail-trail Relay and Ultra. The race will now have its own
day - the last Saturday of July.
The race starts at the Armory and Log Show stadium in Buckley and descends across four beautiful
bridges along "The Loop" to South Prairie before finishing at Orting's town
park. The course uses the paved Foothills Trail to the extent possible (87%)
and roads (8%), sidewalks (0%) and rough trails (5%) when not.
We hope to see you on July 25, 2015
