The course is a 5k loop that takes you through all the main attractions of Magnuson Park. For the longer distances you simply run the course two or three times. As you approach the finish line there are two lanes a passing lane for those continuing on to a longer distance and a finish lane where you finish and a bib collector will take the bottom tag off your bib. Please have your bib visible at the finish. The course is open to the public and some areas may have pedestrian traffic so please be courteous of other trail users. We start taking down the course after 2 hours, if you need more time we have an early start option at each race. You can start the race 1 hour early at any of our events. The course will be all set up and we will have the start line staffed so just let us know you are starting early when you get to the start line.
5k Run/Walk = 1 lap, 10k Run/Walk = 2 laps, 15k Run = 3 laps
2 Team Run= 1 laps each. Both runners start at the same time and the times are added together for a team time. Only on selected events.
We have an aid station every 3 miles. During the summer months we have an aid station every 2 miles.
The course is a 5k loop so one lap for the 5k, two laps for the 10k and 3 laps for the 15k. When you arrive back to the finish line there will be a lane for passing through on your left and a finishing lane on your right. You will see the mile markers for the longer distance first as it is a 3.1 mile loop.
Run the 5k loop 4 times, then on your last lap you finish with our 1.097k loop. This gives you a 21.097k course which is a half marathon 13.1miles.
