About The Lake Washington Half Marathon
The Lake Washington Half Marathon is a wonderful race that takes place in Kirkland, Washington on 21 October, 2023. The route follows the beautiful shoreline of Lake Washington and features some spectacular views along the way. It starts at Carillon Point Marina and heads north towards Juanita Bay Park before looping back to the start line for a total distance of 13.1 miles.
The scenery along this course is breathtaking with lush green parks alongside picturesque waterfront views. You’ll pass through several popular local attractions such as Downtown Kirkland, Juanita Beach Park, and Carillon Point Marina while taking in all the sights around you. Plus, there are plenty of places to stop for snacks or beverages if you need a break during your run!
October tends to be mild in Kirkland with temperatures ranging from 50-65 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the day; ideal running weather! And since it’s an autumn race, you can expect gorgeous fall colors all over town too – making it even more enjoyable for spectators and runners alike!
Speaking of spectators – this half marathon draws quite a large crowd each year with both locals and visitors cheering on participants as they finish their journey across Lake Washington’s shoreline. There’s also usually live music playing near the finish line which helps create an uplifting atmosphere too!
Something special about this particular half marathon is that proceeds from every registration go toward supporting local charities – so not only do you get to enjoy running through one of Seattle’s most scenic areas but also help those who need it most within our community as well!
Overall, I would highly recommend signing up for this race because not only does it provide beautiful scenery but also gives back to those who truly need it – plus who wouldn’t want to take part in something like that? So don’t miss out on your chance and register today – we’ll see you at Lake Washington Half Marathon next October!
