Washington > Wenatchee Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K
Wenatchee, WA • Saturday, April 19, 2014 • Course Map
Set in nearly the geographic center of Washington State, the town of Wenatchee straddles the great Columbia River that runs north-south through the entire middle of the state, and plays host each April to the Wenatchee Marathon & Half Marathon, which also includes a full marathon relay and a 10K race.
The course for all three events is scenic and free of traffic, and is open to both runners and walkers (though wheelchairs and jogging strollers are not permitted). Made entirely of paved surfaces, the course is mostly flat with a few gently rolling hills -- its lowest elevation is about 560 feet above sea level, and its highest is about 620 feet.
The starting line for each of the four races is near Centennial Park on Wenatchee Avenue, next to Key Bank at 102 South Wenatchee Ave. From the start, the course proceeds northward along Wenatchee Avenue and then eastward on 5th Street, to the Apple Capital Loop Trail. After reaching this point, the remainder of all four races take runners exclusively along the Apple Capital Loop Trail to the finish at Wenatchee Riverfront Park.
