Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon coming through our hood June 13

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon & 1/2 Marathon is coming up on Saturday, June 13

The marathon and 1/2 marathon race courses have not changed since last year. New to the race this year in an 8K that will take place inside of the existing marathon course.  All races will still start and finish at the Seattle Center, the exact start location will shift slightly from last year.  This year the start will be at 4th Avenue & Denny Way and the finish at Mercer Street and 3rd Ave.

Runners will enjoy a scenic start as they head south through downtown and east to Lake Washington.  Participants will take in iconic views of Seattle from Lake Washington Blvd. and Seward Park before heading back to downtown in the I-90 Express Lanes,, and returning to Seattle Center on the Alaskan Way Viaduct.
