Hwy 20, Rosario Road
SE Bayshore Drive
Accessible by vehicle from the mainland (the island lies just north of Seattle in Washington’s Puget Sound, Whidbey Island is a treasure of scenic natural beauty — with ample views of the nearby ocean, peaceful backroads through the island’s farmland areas, and the snow-capped peaks of the nearby Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges. Runners will get to see many of the sights and sounds available here during the race, as much of the course takes runners along the waterfront.
The course for the marathon starts on Hwy 20 at Rosario Road to Ducken Road. From there, the point-to-point course cross over a brdige and winds through paved city streets, country roads and trails, taking runners and walkers (the race is open to both) along Bayshore Drive, through Windjammer Park, ultimately southward toward Windjammer Park on the middle portion of the island near Penn Cove. For most of the race, the marathon offers gently rolling hills, with the most significant changes in elevation.
