Part of a weekend of athletic festivities organized by the Chelan Multisport Group, a volunteer organization that raises funds and stages events to promote healthy lifestyles for local kids and adults, the Chelan Multisport Half Marathon saw 100 runners cross the finish line last year.
The race follows an out-and-back course that starts and ends at Lakeside Park on the shore of Lake Chelan, a glacier-fed lake that sits just to the southeast of the state’s Cascade Mountain range and North Cascades National Park.
From the starting line at the southeastern corner of the park near East Center Street, runners make their way northeast along South Lakeshore Road all the way to the half-way turnaround point, which lies just before they reach Lake Chelan State Park.
There, the course turns around and heads back in the opposite direction, all the way back to the park for the race finish.
The half marathon race — the course is described as “moderately hilly” by race organizers — begins at 7:15 AM on Saturday at Lakeside Park on the lakeshore.
For runners who don’t feel up to running 13.1 miles, the event also offers a 10K race that shares the same starting line and starting time as the half marathon.
