About The Larry Scott Run
The Larry Scott Run is an annual half marathon race held in the town of Port Townsend, Washington on 14 October 2023. It’s a great way to experience the beauty and ruggedness of this coastal town, as well as enjoy some fun and friendly competition with other runners.
The route for the run takes you along a scenic path that winds through downtown Port Townsend and then out into open fields and wooded sections. The first few miles are relatively flat, but it’s still challenging enough to give you a good workout. As you get closer to the finish line there are several short hills which add an extra challenge but also provide stunning views of both land and sea.
October is generally mild in Port Townsend with temperatures ranging from 50F-60F during the day so it’s perfect running weather! There can be fog at times but usually dissipates by midday leaving behind beautiful blue skies just in time for your race start!
Crowd support is always high at local races like this one, especially when they’re part of a larger event such as Larry Scott Run. Spectators line up along most of the course shouting words of encouragement while photographers capture all those special moments throughout your run – making sure no runner feels forgotten or left out from all the fun!
This year marks the 10th anniversary for Larry Scott Run so organizers have something extra special planned: each participant will receive their own commemorative medal when they cross finish line – providing everyone with something to remember their accomplishment long after their feet have stopped pounding against pavement! So don’t miss out on this unique opportunity – sign up now for what promises to be another amazing year at Larry Scott Run!
