Both Marathon and Half marathon runners will follow the Spokane River headed west toward Spokane. Most of the course is run on the centennial trail with a net negative elevation gain. The last two miles of the course will weave runners around Mission Park and Gonzaga University. The finish line will be on the north side of the Convention Center along the centennial trail next to the Spokane River. Cross the line and walk right into the after party to celebrate your accomplishment.
Marathon Runner – The Marathon runner division is for those individuals who plan to finish the race under 5.5 hours. Your start time will be 7:00AM. Participants running the marathon or doing a combination of walking and running should sign-up for this division.
Marathon Walker – The Marathon walker division is meant to give those slower participants a little extra time and better support on the course toward the end of the race. These participants will have 7.5 hours to finish the race. Marathon walkers start at 5:00 AM and there is no shuttle bus before the race, but you can catch a shuttle back to the start after the race. It should be noted that aid stations will be self serve until 6:30 AM and police support at major intersections will be limited until 6:30 AM.
Half Marathon – All half marathon participants will sign-up for the same division and have the same start time of 8:00 AM. Half marathon participants will have 4.5 hours to complete the course.
