Summary: This relatively flat course starts and ends at Gas Works Park and runs through Fremont, over the Fremont Bridge, along the Ship Canal Path and south around Lake Union. Runners return to Gas Works Park via the University Bridge and through the Wallingford neighborhood, with scenic views along the way of Seattle waterways, floating homes, parks and quirky neighborhoods. While it’s not an all women’s race, it’s certainly geared towards women, has a great swag bag and post-party goodies, but men are certainly allowed to participate.
Lessons Learned from Race Reports
- The race starts as an out and back on a fairly narrow bike path trail, so if you’re fast, you want to get out so you’re not boxed in
