Race Results: 2017 New Year’s Discovery 5K/10K

This bald eagle presided over the finish line at the 2017 New Year’s Discovery 5K/10K in Port Townsend.

Congratulations to all the brave participants in the 2017 New Year’s Discovery 5K/10K Run/Walk. The hearty entrants braved ice, snow, slush, mud, and wind (and a little sun) to finish the out-and-back course on the Discovery Bay Golf Course and ODT-Larry Scott Trail. All finishers appreciated cups of hot cocoa as a local eagle peered down from his perch above the driving range.

Thanks to all participants and sponsors. The first three men and women finishers in each distance received $25, $15, and $10 gift certificates from Sport Townsend. Every registrant received an ODT logo headband/neck warmer from Quality Logo Products. Thanks to the Discovery Bay Golf Club for hosting the fifth annual event. Hadlock QFC donated bottled water. The Port Townsend Food Co-Op donated oranges and bananas. Jefferson County Parks and Recreation donated time and advertising.
