In 2013 the Buckley to Orting (B&O) Half Marathon was separated from the Rainier to Ruston Rail-Trail Relay and Ultra. Since then the race has its own day, the fourth Saturday of July, Pierce County Trails Day.

Again this year the race will not start in Buckley as it has in the past. The trail will be closed due to construction that will be occurring on the unpaved portion of the Foothills Trail from the parking area just south of Buckley to the private road at 268th Ave Ct. E.  In order to avoid this construction while keeping this a trail race, we have decided to make this year's course an out-and-back from Orting.  Next year in 2018 the race will again go from Buckley to Orting on the brand new trail.
