Seattle Rock n Roll Marathon & Half-Marathon
The Seattle Rock n’ Roll Marathon and half marathon are part of the famous international Rock n’ Roll Marathon series of events. This race features an enormous field of participants, a scenic course through Seattle, and the added bonus of live bands playing for every mile of both the half and full courses..
In recent years the Seattle Rock n’ Roll Marathon and half marathon have attracted a field of around 22,000 runners and walkers. This event has consistently grown in size since its inception.
The marathon and half marathon routes both begin in downtown Seattle and head south through downtown and out towards Lake Washington. Half marathon runners follow a short course along the lakeshore then typically retrace their route back towards the finish area. Runners in the full marathon category follow an out and back route along the lake, get to cross the floating I-90 bridge, then follow the half marathon course back towards the finish area in Seattle.
The most notable thing about the Seattle Rock n’ Roll Marathon is the fantastic atmosphere centered around having fun. The sheer size and course of the race make it a great race to run, but not necessarily the best race to shoot for a personal best on. There is a walkers category in the full marathon distance making this a great marathon for walkers.
