My Better Half Marathon
Sun February 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Like peanut butter and jelly, cookies and milk, wine and cheese, Netflix and your couch, we are better together! The race features three distances (5K, 10K and half marathon) and a half marathon relay so everyone can find a distance that suits them. As our first race of the year, we like to make this one a little more fun, with an extensive and delicious oatmeal bar, a large heated tent, nice race shirts. Walkers are welcome.
All courses run along the beautiful shores of Lake Washington for almost the entirety of their distances.
Half Marathon: New for 2023 the half marathon course is a total of 2 laps. The first lap has a steep but quick hill early on and is 6.9 miles in length. The second lap is 6.2 miles long and is 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 3.1 miles long. 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 both laps are completed. Lap one is 6.9 miles long and has a quick but steep hill in the beginning, Lap two is 6.2 miles long and is nice and flat! It doesn’t matter who completes which lap. There is a relay hand off area just before the finish line (in the park gazebo) where you make the exchange from one runner to the other.
