The race is timed using ChronoTrack tag technology. Your results cannot be posted unless the bib and tag is worn in the proper manner. Everyone on the course must be wearing a race bib. Please ensure bib/chip is fully visible in front over clothes so you can be identified in your race photos and so your time is properly recorded. For more info and instructions on proper tag use, see the Timing page.
Unofficial results will be posted near the finish line as soon as they are available. A complete listing of official results will be posted at www.seattlemarathon.org on the 10k Results page shortly after the race.
