Washington > Virginia Mason Team Medicine Marathon & Half Marathon at Seafair
Bellevue, WA



Saturday, June 29, 2008

Event Details

Located just a few minutes' drive from nearby Seattle, Bellevue will welcome around 3,500 runners and walkers to this year's Virginia Mason Team Medicine Marathon & Half Marathon at Seafair, which starts and finishes at the city's Bellevue Downtown Park. Run on a fairly hilly course that features moderate uphills and downhills through the first half of the race and a steeper downhill in the second half, especially from miles 8 to 9, the race takes runners along a course consisting entirely of paved city streets, past views of the city's numerous parks and waterfront areas.

Open to both runners and walkers, the half marathon begins at 7:15 AM (for runners) and 7:30 AM (for the walkers), and features a Nordic Walking division in this year's race. The elevation changes along the 13.1 miles of the half course range from a minimum of 25 feet to a maximum of 409 feet above sea level. Also new this year is the event's Kids Mini-Marathon, in which children participants run the final mile of 26.2 they have run prior to race day.

Race Weather & Climate

July is tied with August for the Bellevue area's driest month, with an average of just under an inch of average rainfall during the month. Last year's race reportedly had beautiful weather, and the city normally sees mild to moderately warm weather during the month, with temperatures that average between 55°F and 75°F.
