Running Seattle since 1970

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 51 years ago sported 38 runners. This year, thousands of participants are expected for the marathon and half marathon walking and running events. Do you have images or stories of past Seattle Marathons? We’d love to hear from you! Send us your vintage Seattle Marathon pictures and memories or use #runsea in your social media posts. We will be sharing selected stories with our community throughout the year.
