Seattle Marathon

Get ready for an epic race at one of Seattle’s most iconic parks!

Seattle Marathon is coming back to Seward Park next Saturday, August 28th. Runners, walkers, and volunteers are welcome to join this amazing outdoor activity!

SMA is a non-profit organization providing the best running event in the Pacific Northwest. This marathon began back in 1970 when a group of friends from UW decided to hold their own running events. From these modest beginnings, the Seattle Marathon has risen to become one of the largest, and most influential mass participation runs in the PNW!

This event is perfect for the entire family, kids are welcome and encouraged to participate. You can choose between different modalities, like the 5k run, 10k run, or a combo of both, where you can run and enjoy the beautiful Seward Park with iconic views of Lake Wahington, and of Mt Rainier. For those who aren’t able to join on race day, a virtual option is available!

The live race is having a full-on schedule of events starting on Friday, August 27th. You can check the hours below.
