Note: I am a 2015 Seattle Marathon Ambassador.
On August 22nd, at Green Lake Park the Seattle Marathon will host the party of the summer; the Seattle Marathon hosts the Seattle Marathon 10K and kids run takes over historic Gas Works Park. And the Seattle Humane Socitey charity athletes will be there.
The course gives you great scenic views of Seattle and allows you to enjoy some of the best of Seattle historical buildings, and of course the waterfront as you are making the turn at the Ship Canal Bridge.
This is a dog friendly event (as long as they are on leash.
One of the biggest draws about doing a race in Seattle in the middle of the summer; the weather. The average high is 75 degrees and Gas Works can be quite breezy.
They also offer akids fun run for any kid which is a great way to bring the entire family together.
I have not had the chance to run this race; so this year will be my first year to do it; (as a Seattle Marathon Ambassador to boot) and I am excited. This is also a Seattle Humane Society Charity Athlete headline event. Make sure you look for their table there and check out what they are doing (as it is amazing.)
Until race day, the 10K only costs 45.00 and gives you your choice of color of short sleeve tech shirt. (Really your own color choice is awesome. I know zero races that do this).
