Flat, Simple Course
In a long race, too much up will slow you down, too much down can tire out your quads, and too many turns will confuse your brain. Fortunately, we have one of the flattest courses in the Pacific Northwest, and it’s also simple. It starts at about 400 feet and drops gradually to 325. There are few turns, and each turn is marked with arrows, chalk, and friendly volunteers. On our course, your body and brain will focus on moving forward instead of up, down, or trying to get back on course!
Last Chance to qualify for Boston!
Each year, the Boston Marathon opens registration at the beginning of September. Our race date happens just before they typically fill up and close the window. If you did not get your Boston Qualifier earlier in the year, now is your last chance. Roughly 20% of our participants qualify for the Boston Marathon at our race. In addition, most of our participants are working toward a personal goal or a first time marathon, half, or 5K. It’s an inspiring atmosphere!
