Join Duane Wright on Saturday, Feb. 9 to ride the Seattle Marathon route. Well, most of it anyway. Enjoy this steady-paced “marathon” from the comfort of your bike saddle. Take in incredible views of the Seattle skyline and Lake Washington on this 26.2 mile route that includes some hills. There’s sure to be a water station or two along the way, but bring your own water and nutrition too.
It’s a 10 a.m. start, so meet on the north side of the EMP at the Seattle Center, sign the waiver, listen to the safety briefing and talk about the benefits of carbo-loading with anyone who’ll listen.
There will be frequent regrouping for this ride, but just in case you “hit the wall”, cue sheets will be available.
When you cross the finish line, we don’t recommend you mimic those runners and take your hands off the handlebars, but we do expect high fives all around!
