About See Jane Run Women's Half Marathon (Seattle)

Set for its annual running this year, Seattle’s See Jane Run Women’s Half Marathon & 5K is the second of three “See Jane Run”-themed races that take place across the Western U.S. throughout the year, and are run here in Seattle when conditions are usually driest in this famously rainy city.

Organized by the California-based athletic store chain of the same name as a benefit for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the race — which features as its tagline, “I run for chocolate and champagne”! — gives girls, women, sisters, daughters and mothers an opportunity to train for and run in their first half-marathon while also raising money to fight disease.

Gas Works Park on Lake Union in Seattle

Gas Works Park, 2101 N Northlake Way, Seattle, WA 98103, USA




The See Jane Run Half Marathon starts and ends at Gas Works Park. Along the course you will travel through the unique Fremont area, over the Fremont Bridge along the Ship Canal Path and south around Lake Union. Return to Gas Works Park via the University Bridge and the lovely Wallingford Neighborhood. You'll get scenic views of Seattle waterways, floating homes, parks and quirky neighborhoods.


For its Seattle half marathon (as well as its 5K and one-mile kids’ fun run), the See Jane Run race is set to follow an out-and-back course that will start and finish just north of Seattle’s downtown, on the grounds of Gas Works Park, overlooking the waters of Lake Union.

From there, the course takes runners along a combination of roads and the running, walking and biking trails that surround Lake Union, including a pair of bridge crossings — across the Fremont Avenue Bridge early in the race, and the University Bridge in the second half.

A former coal gasification plant that was converted into a public park in the 1970s, Gas Works Park today still contains old ruins of the former Seattle Gas & Light Company buildings and factories that once occupied this small peninsula that juts out into the lake, which prompted the Seattle Times website to observe, “Gas Works Park is easily the strangest park in Seattle, and may rank among the strangest in the world.”
