Course Details
All courses run along the beautiful shores of Lake Washington for almost the entirety of their distances.

Half Marathon: The half marathon course is a total of 3 laps. The first lap has a steep but quick hill and is 3.1 miles in length. Laps 2 and 3 are each 5 miles long and are nice and flat!

10K: The 10K course is a total of 2 laps. The first lap has some hills in the beginning and is 3.7 miles long whereas the second lap is nice and flat and is 2.5 miles in length!

5K: The 5k course is the same as the half marathon lap 1 course. A steep but quick hill in the beginning is a great warm-up but once you come back down it’s a breeze!

Half Marathon Relay: The relay course can be completed in any way you prefer, as long as all 3 laps are completed. One person can do lap 1 and 2, and the other person complete lap 3– it’s really up to you. There is a relay bracelet hand off area just before the finish line where you make the exchange from one runner to the other.
