There should be plenty of parking at Woodland Park or Green Lake.
This is a "fat ass" event. Even though this is a free event, please register so we can make sure to make enough finishers medals. When you register for the race, you may add a donation if you would like (donation will go to cover the costs of the event).
A short sleeve tech shirt can be purchased for $15. If interested please order when registering before January 9th. There maybe extra shirts available at the event for purchase for $15 (cash/check).

Since this is a fat ass event, the event will be capped at 150 runners.
The marathon is a double out-and-back course starting at Woodland Park in Seattle and running down Stone Way to the Burke-Gilman Trail heading west toward Golden Gardens Park. It's not a closed course and runners will be rerquired to obey all traffic laws. You can see a map of the course here: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=4181253 The Half Marathon is a single out-and-back.
It's New Year's in the Pacific Northwest, what do you expect?! It will likely be cold and possibly wet (or icy and snowy). So be prepared.
As a fat ass event, you will be asked to carry your own aid. There will be no aid stations setup on the course, but there are plenty of coffee shops and grocery stores along the course where you may get water or aid as needed. At the start/finish we will have water, Gatorade, chips, cookies, etc.
Each finisher will receive a finishers medal.
