Route description

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.

Carpooling is highly recommended. There are about 200 parking spots in the Upper Loop of Seward Park, as well as ample parallel parking. You may need to walk a little ways to the start which is located at on the South side of the park so please plan ahead. There is also plenty of on-street parking around Seward Park all within walking distance.
