From the starting line at the Ferdinand Street Boat Launch, the half marathon begins by taking runners south along Lake Washington to Seward Park, where the route makes a full loop around this park filled with nesting bald eagles, miles of hiking trails, prairie land and an outdoor amphitheater. Once runners make their way along Seward Park Road, they’ve completed the first few miles of the run and head back onto Lake Washington Boulevard for the next two thirds of the half.
