Run The Longest Race On Whidbey Island
Want to run a gorgeous scenic course on country backroads and along waterfront coastline? See snow-capped mountains, beaches and wildlife... Join us for The Whidbey Island Marathon and Half Marathon. There is nothing like Spring in the Northwest!

Whidbey Island, the perfect Island weekend getaway... leave the city behind... Whidbey Island is approximately one hour north of Seattle, WA.

If you're not up for the whole tamale, do the last 13.1 miles. Not a walk in the park, it's a run/walk on the island. You will be going over the hills and through the dales, and yes, Grandma does live in Coupeville. Do you have the stamina and guts to pay her a visit? Some people will do anything for cookies and milk........

This course is USATF certified and is a Boston Qualifier..
