Summary: A stadium-to-stadium course running from Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium to CenturyLink Field. This is the first year running this course, with the most significant elevation gain of about 180 feet being around Volunteer Park, once runners have crossed over the University Bridge from about mile 1 to 1.5. Runners then take Madison Avenue down to Lake Washington, running on a fairly flat course along the water until mile 8, when runners start heading back towards CenturyLink Field. There is a long gradual incline as runners head back towards the finish, from miles 7.5 to 12, and then finish with a downhill until the finish at CenturyLink Field.
