Ghost of Seattle Marathon
THE 2013 GHOST OF SEATTLE MARATHON REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON DATABAR Friday July 19th. Use this link to go directly https://www.databarevents.com/nwultras.asp .
If you search on Databar there are 2 links. One is a direct and the other is the entire race list so you will need to scroll to Seattle Ghost Marathon (there is no Ghost of Seattle Marathon in the list)
We always fill up so do not delay
ALL DOUBLE, TRIPLE and QUAD RUNNERS WILL GET IN EVEN IF FULL.
I will order high quality long sleeve soft tech shirts from Leslie Jordan of Portland again this year.
SEATTLE GHOST IS THE BEST MICRO MARATHON IN THE COUNTRY!
Race is USTAF certified and a Boston Marathon qualifier. Feel free to break out your racing flats! Thanks to Terry Sentinella for making this certification happen.
This year there are excellent finisher medals, the food and aid will be great as usual. There will be 3 porta potties at the start/finish and one at the Leschi aid station.
The Seattle Ghost Marathon races include 13.1 half, 26.2 full and 50K options. This is a fun run starting from tiny Mt Baker park near Seward Park in Seattle. Parking is limited so it is OK to walk from Seward Park or Ferdinand St nearby. Start is 8:00 am on Saturday November 30th 2013 the course and aid shut down at 2:00 so please plan accordingly.
Early start is 6am or 7am ONLY. You must take longer than 4 hours for the marathon. If you run faster than 4 hours you will get an automatic 4:01 race time.
Overall winners will only be from those that start at the designated race time.

The Birch Bay Marathon and 15.1 mile option will start at 9:00am and finish at 2:00pm on Saturday December 14, 2013 from Birch Bay State Park. The weather should be terrible so please plan accordingly! Beware of ice on the roads and drive carefully.
An 8:00 start is available for those who plan on taking 5 or more hours. It does cause us aid issues so plan on carrying your own until mobile aid finds you on the loop.
