Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon & Half Marathon
June 17, 2017 - June 18, 2017
Beginning in the shadows of the Space Needle, the Seattle Marathon and Half Marathon draw tens of thousands of runners each year, as the course loops around the city, offering runners vast lake and mountain views. From Seattle Center to charming old urban neighborhoods, along Lake Washington and its labyrinths of houseboats, the course offers a wide variety of backdrops, sure to please and distract those racers in it for the long haul. While Seattle’s rolling hills and unpredictable weather can deter even the most intrepid runners, the race is known for its lively spectators and reliable water stations, making even the longest stretches of road fly by. If you’re planning on pushing your body to that 26.2 limit, you’ll want to check out the Health & Fitness Expo the day prior to the big day. There, you’ll be able to pick up your race bib, and find the latest in running technologies, fitness apparel, and health and nutritional information to prepare you for your casual jaunt through the city. Keep race day jitters to a minimum by giving yourself plenty of time to get to the starting line– parking is known to be expensive and congestion is heavy. Maximize those parking fee by sticking around after your run– grab a beer and a banana, and hobble over to the nearby post-race “Mayer Hawthorne” concert to revel in your triumph.
