Seattle Marathon 10k Summer Race

August 24, 2013 marks the 3rd annual Seattle Marathon 10k Run+Walk at Gas Works Park.

Can you believe that I am born and raised in Seattle and I have never ran a race associated with the Seattle Marathon? Shocking, I know! I am very excited to be able to run my first Seattle Marathon 10k Run this year.

I have only heard positive feedback from past participants who ran the 10k in previous years!

This year’s race has a brand new course that starts and finishes at Gas Works Park. Runners will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenic views of Lake Union while running on the Burke-Gilman Trail.
