Runners start the point-to-point course for the Orca Half on the pathways along the shoreline of Elliott Bay in Seattle’s Lincoln Park. From there, the course heads along several twists and turns on the park roads and trails that wind through it, before heading out onto Lincoln Park Way and Beach Drive, which will take you north all the way to Alki, where you’ll turn onto Alki Avenue. Then you’ll follow the course all the way around to Harbor Avenue and nearly to the West Seattle Bridge, before turning around and heading back north to the finish line, next to the Don Armeni Boat Launch.
