Azam P. at the Orcas Island 100
Azam P. recently completed the Orcas Island 100 mile race. Here’s his report:
The Orcas Island 100 offers a steep single track, rolling terrain around mountain lakes, and fun and fast downhill sections through old-growth forest and sweeping views of the neighboring Islands. With ~26,000 feet of elevation gain (and equal loss), it’s as tough as it is beautiful. Runners have to complete four 25.2-mile loops, each loop with five fully stocked aid stations. There is a 36-hour overall time limit, and cut-off times were strictly enforced throughout the last loop. There was a local beer, live bluegrass musi,c and wood-fired pizza at the finish line! This race is quickly gaining a reputation as being a low-key, intimate race with a grass roots feel.
It was hilarious to witness runners scream profanities to whoever designed course as we were crawling through the steepest part of the course. The toughest part was being able to power through the same course four times. The best part was the pizza slice in the my mouth as I ran out of the aid station on my last loop with 14 minutes before the 36-hour cutoff time. My finishing time was 35 hours 29 minutes and 50 seconds. So I basically had 30 minutes left before the race was officially over.
Congrats, Azam! This was truly an amazing feat.
