From its humble beginnings in 1970 when a group of friends from the University of Washington decided to hold their own marathon, the Seattle Marathon Family of Events has grown into one of the largest combination marathon/half marathon in the Northwest.
That first marathon 50 years ago supported fewer than 30 runners. This year, thousands of runners and wakers from Seattle and all over the world will participate virtually in this decades-old Thanksgiving weekend tradition.
