Lessons Learned from Race Reports

  • While it’s a small race, the out and back sections can get crowded
  • Likely to have wet, rainy conditions being in Seattle, so be prepared for any weather condition
  • Could get windy with out and back sections, so adjust your effort accordingly into the wind
  • Out and back section along the river can be a bit boring for scenery
  • Small town race feel, so no need to show up hours before the race, as logistics like parking, packet pickup, porta-potties, etc, are easier
  • Could have some gravel spots near the turnaround on the second out and back
  • Since the half and 10k runners start at 8am, if you’re a fairly fast runner in the marathon, you may catch them, as they start out on the second out and back
  • Since the small hills are in the first out and back, you likely won’t notice them


Type: Two out and backs with the same start/finish location

Hills: First 10 miles includes the hills, including hills of ~50 feet at miles 0, 4, 7.5, and 9, all over the course of ~.5 mile, and then a smaller ~25 foot hill to the finish.
