Shuttle Information

Shuttles will begin transporting runners at 5:45 a.m. from SR 20 / Bayshore Drive area between the 7-11 and Whidbey Island Bank up to  the start line for the Half marathon.  The last bus will depart by 6:30 a.m.  We don’t recommend waiting ’til the last bus as everyone has that same idea, which could cause you to be delayed if there are too many people for the final bus.

Shuttles will also be available at the following Oak Harbor hotels: Coachman Inn, Best Western, Candlewood Suites, and Auld Holland Inn .

Pacers will be on the course.
