About This Activity

Day of Race registration is available at the park

What’s the only day of the year that is 25 hours long? The first Sunday in November when Daylight Savings Time ends and we set our clocks back an hour!

We invite you to celebrate that “extra” hour by being part of a healthy, enjoyable, and well-organized event. Sign up today for a half marathon, 10K or 5K!

All courses begin and end at the beautiful Rainier Vista Community Park in Lacey.



Proceeds from Turn Back the Clock are for the benefit of high school cross country and track teams in Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater.

Turn Back the Clock is hosted by Club Oly Road Runners, a local non-profit organization devoted to fostering a love for running at all levels and the enhanced fitness and wellness it brings. The event is organized and supported entirely by volunteers. There is no paid staff. We do use a professional timing company to provide accurate race results. This allows us to keep the prices low, provide a quality experience, and raise funds to support our running mission.
