Cars were not stopped at crossroads and many times the police officers were NOT stopping the traffic in favor of the runners.
Lots of potholes and broken glass in the street.
Parking was fine at the zoo parking lot. Just get there early enough.

It was windy and no protection from the elements. 13.1 miles out against the wall of wind. However, all the wind pushed you back on the second 13.1 miles.
Packet pick up should have been race morning due the low number of participants. However, day of race packet pick up was not offered. Runners from EL PASO had to make 2 trips just to get packages/bibs.

Race was cut short for some running due to heat. I was not affected and completed my race in a respectable time. It was humid and not quite as hot as reported.
OVERALL – This was my 6th time running this marathon and it is #1 for all marathons.
Will be back in 2024 to do # 7

Just a side note: If you choose the host hotel, transport after the race does not exist and you are forced to be on the metro and bus for about 1 hour to get back to the hotel.

Parked at the Space Needle parking lot (PAID)
Course started at the Space Needle.
Run through downtown for the first few miles on your way to UW and then to the trail that you will be on for most of the run.
Expect lots of graphic graffiti. trash on the running trail
This was in 2019 so I believe the course has been changed in 2024.

when I live in WA state I always made sure to register for this race when they opened it. The scenery was great and the course was easy and on a paved trail. MT Rainer was in the background
The Race Directors always did a great job on this race.
One sore point was the transport back could be spotty but I am sure it improved over the years.
I do miss this race

There were many hills but its WHIDBEY Island which very hilly. I enjoyed the race but expected the hills since I lived in WA State at the time. This was my first and only attempt at the FULL for this race. My other attempts at Whidbey Island were all at the Half Marathon level. Expect course changes. Its changed a few times (Ran HM X4 and FM X 1)

This race is a copy cat race of the other two marathons that are ran on this course. Need to do the course once to understand how it compared to the Tunnel and Cascade Series. Loads of faster runners use this race as a Boston Qualifier. On a positive note, it is held on a SAT and SUN to give runners the chance to complete it either day.

Package pickup was ok and no issues.
Took a shuttle bus from NJ to the staging area of the park
Got there very early on race day but we camped out in the park before our very late start.
Race is through the city and you see many sites and have a lot of crowd
support.
Very lucky to get in and glad I got to do it once but never want to do it again due to logistics
