Sunday, August 16, 2020 • Snohomish, WA • Course Map
Set for its 4th annual running here in this small town just outside of Seattle, the Evergreen Half Marathon takes runners on a point-to-point all-downhill course along the Centennial Trail, and where you’ll get a trucker’s hat to go along with your medal when you cross the finish line.
Runners will park at the finish line, then take a shuttle and start the race in Getchell Trailhead Park, in the unincorporated community of Getchell, Washington. From there, the course continues onto the Centennial Trail, a 30-mile multi-use path that runs from downtown Snohomish all the way north to Skagit County.
The course continues south along Centennial Trail for the entire half marathon, with plenty of course support along the way, course organizers write. Combined with the all-downhill course, this certified course is a great choice for achieving a personal record.
After crossing the finish line at Averill Field in downtown Snohomish, where finishers receive a medal and strawberry shortcake, a tradition for this half marathon.
For runners not ready for the half marathon, there’s also a five-mile race that starts at the Machias Trailhead Park (along the course of the half marathon) and finishes in Snohomish with the half marathoners.
