Seattle Marathon 2016/2017

Seattle Marathon
One of the oldest marathons in North America, the first Seattle marathon was held in 1970 with a mere 38 runners.

Back then, a group of students from the University of Washington got together to organise a marathon. Since then, the Seattle Marathon has grown to be the largest run in the Northwest and among the largest ten races in the US. 

The Seattle Marathon is part of the Seattle family of events which include a half marathon, children’s race, 5K and 10K runs, marathon walk, half marathon walk and the marathon expo. 

The course which is quite hilly, will start at the Seattle Center at 5th and Harrison and will take runners on a scenic tour of downtown Seattle, the shores of the idyllic Lake Washington, through the beautiful horticultural paradise of the Arboretum in Washington Park where participants can enjoy the plethora of rare plant species. 

The route loops around Seward Park and takes runners across the I-90 floating bridge and finally to the finish line at the Memorial Stadium. 

Being a challenging course with some steep hills, the Seattle Marathon is not one of the fastest races in North America. In 2010, the fastest time was 2:30:57, achieved by Teshome Kokebe (US) and the women’s race was won by Sabine Pullins in 3:04:16. Charlie Sunderlage won the 2009 edition of the Seattle Marathon in 2:32:27 and the women’s best result was Lauren Breihof’s time of 2:58:59.
