A stunningly beautiful course in the scenic town of Leavenworth. Marathoners will start near the renown Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area. Runners will run a loop through the Icicle Canyon the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth through wooded riverfront trails. Mixed surface of asphalt and dirt trails. Surrounded by impressive mountains, you'll likely see salmon spawning in the Wenatchee River and Icicle Creek. The half marathon events welcomes both runners and walkers. The marathon is limited to runners who will complete the course within the six hour time limit, due to course restrictions. The half marathon course is open for four hours.
Leavenworth is Washington's Bavarian Village, and there's no bigger party than Oktoberfest. TedDriven, LLC is committed to increasing recreational opportunities in the Wenatchee Valley, raising funds for cancer research and supporting local organizations.
Marathoners start roughly 9 miles out of town and get to rocket down a long slope until they enter Leavenworth from the east. After that things are fairl straightforward as both full and half marathoners follow a looped course until the end of each respoective distance.
Things are mainly flat. Full marathoners should prepare for the long downhill at the begining.
