QUILCENE — Three races — the Quilcene Oyster Half-Marathon, a 10K Salmon Run and a 5K Ranger Run — are all planned for Quilcene on Saturday, Sept. 28.

All the races will be professionally timed by AASports and will start at 9 a.m. at Worthington Park, 151 E. Columbia Ave.

The cost will be $65 for the half-marathon. The 10K is $45 for adults, $40 for those 18 and younger, and the 5K is $30 for adults, $25 for 18 and younger.

Late registration will add $5 to each race fee until the day of the race.

The events are a benefit for Quilcene-Brinnon Dollars for Scholars and the Friends of Jefferson County Parks and Recreation.

Northwest Runner magazine from Seattle will be on site to cover the races, said Jane Storm, one of the organizers.

Free race for kids

In addition, a free race is planned: the Jefferson Healthcare Kid's Sprint for those 9 and younger, which will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Water stations will start at the 1-mile mark and will be every 1 miles until the end.

Four aid stations will be set up along the course, and there will be at least three portable toilets on the course, with several at the start/finish line.
