Run the Peninsula is a non-profit organization that gives back to the community and the trails that we run on.

This event could not happen without the support of the community, our volunteers and the Peninsula Trails Coalition (Build and maintain the Olympic Discovery Trail). Run the Peninsula series takes place on the Olympic Discovery Trail, which is run by the Peninsula Trails Coalition. The Peninsula Trails Coalition is an amazing all volunteer group that helps to build, protect, grow and maintain the trail. The Peninsula Trails Coalition is a 501(c)3 Corporation registered in the State of Washington Tax ID 91-1416511.

All of the Run the Peninsula events will give back to various groups in the community. Proceeds from all of the Run the Peninsula races will go towards the Olympic Discovery Trail and other groups in the community.
