The Mission of the Pacific Northwest Marathon:

Promote Health and Fitness Through Running

There is a fitness crisis in our country. People are suffering more and more from chronic disease, poor nutrition, and inactivity. We invite you to join our community of supportive organizations as we encourage people to overcome personal challenges, achieve new heights, and inspire others to be more healthy. Our race is not about being the most elite runner. It’s about ordinary people embarking on their personal journey to acheive their fitness goals. Here are some examples.

Parking and Shuttles for Race Start
The expo and finish line are in the school bus driveway just east of Harrisburg Elementary School on Smith Street. You can not drive in or park there. There is limited parking at the full marathon start, and there is no parking at the half marathon start. The 5K start is the same as the finish line.

The best parking areas are:
1. Harrisburg High School parking lot on 9th Street (on Friday during the expo, we will be competing with a football game, starting at 7:00, so fill the other areas first)
2. Harrisburg Middle School parking on 6th Street (only on the west side so you don’t block the 5K course)
3. Gravel lot between school bus parking and Middle School
4. On city street north of Smith so you don’t block or congest the race course

On Friday for the expo, we will be competing with a football game, so if the parking lots fill up, just drive a little farther north in town to find open street parking. Make sure to park correctly, and don’t block driveways or fire zones.

On Saturday, parking will be easiest before the full marathon, from about 4:15am to 6:15am. If you are going for the half marathon, go a little early in case the parking lots are full and you have to park on the street (not along the race route).

Catch the Shuttle Early
You can catch the shuttle from the high school parking lot as early as 4:45am on Saturday to the full marathon start line. For the half marathon the early shuttle starts at 6:00am and several others come at 6:30am. There are more large buses than last year, so we hope it will be less stressful for everybody.

If you are staying at either of the host hotels, Hilton Garden Inn Springfield or Life Northwest Harrisburg, the shuttle will pick up on Friday for the expo and on Saturday morning early for either race. Full marathon shuttles start from the hotels at 4:30am from Life Northwest and at 4:45 from Hilton Garden Inn. Life Northwest in Harrisburg, is only 1.5 miles from the high school.

Watch for more communications by email.
