Skokomish Park Lake Cushman, formerly know as Camp Cushman or Lake Cushman State Park, covers over 500 acres with three boat-launch ramps on the 41,500 feet of freshwater shoreline on Lake Cushman. Bordered by a spectacular Olympic Mountain ridgeline, the event space provides a unique opportunity to promote local Hood Canal business/organizations, food and Pacific Northwest recreation.
What is it like to #BeTheTraveler on The Traveler 10K Trail Run? When you participate in the Traveler 10K Trail Run you embrace the Hood Canal experience and the spirit of collaboration.

The Traveler 10K Trail Run embodies our "No Traveler Left Behind" motto - offering something for travelers from all walks of life while delivering a sense of accomplishment and teamwork for participants.
The object of the course is not a "timed race," but rather a cooperative goal, as teams of travelers complete the 10 obstacles scattered over the 6.2 mile non-timed course. The Traveler groups will be organized in 8-person teams that will have staggered start times. Each team will depart the starting line in 15-minute increments beginning at 9am, with the last group starting at 5pm. The Traveler 10K Trail Run is designed for individuals, families and teams off all fitness levels to participant in a healthy enjoyable outdoor activity in one of the most beautiful regions of the world. Again, the focus of this run is cooperation and teamwork with fellow travelers, and the goal is to have "No Traveler Left Behind." Prize offerings for best individuals/teams and craziest costume themes will be awarded and an awesome Pacific Northwest experience discovering how to #BeTheTraveler is guaranteed to be had by all.
