The race course is fast and very flat, set against the picturesque backdrop of the Pacific Northwest countryside. It’s an out-and-back course that ends on the track of a local high school, giving it a charming small-town feel. It’s an ideal course for achieving a personal record or Boston Qualifying time.

The Orca Running event takes place on a picturesque downhill trail course that showcases the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. The course is a mix of steep descents and flats that provide a variety of terrains for runners to navigate. The event is held in the summer, when the weather is typically mild and sunny, adding to the overall enjoyment of the experience. With its stunning scenery and well-planned course, the Orca Running event is a must-attend for any runner.

This race course is designed to be fast, with the first four miles being relatively flat, followed by a gentle downhill for most of the race. This makes it ideal for people who want to achieve a personal record. The race directors from Snohomish have done an excellent job of organizing a small-town race.

The crowds were amazing during the race. The route was very iconic, passing through all five boroughs. The hills throughout, especially those over the bridges, and the stretch into Central Park made the course somewhat more challenging.

I had the opportunity to run a marathon recently, and I must say, it was the most beautiful and scenic course I have ever run. The race was full of memorable moments, from the piano player at the end of the Bixby bridge to the kind volunteers handing out strawberries at mile 24. I was so captivated by the surroundings that I decided to leave my GPS watch at home and bring my camera along to capture the breathtaking views.
