In April, the marathon winds through the backroads of North Whidbey and finishes in Oak Harbor. The triathlon made its way through South Whidbey last month.

The Race the Reserve, which features a marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, 10K and 5K, traverses Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve on Central Whidbey.
