THE 2014 GHOST OF SEATTLE MARATHON REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON DATABAR Saturday 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)
NEW POLICIES There will be no allowances for Quad, Triple or Double runners. If you want to run then sign up. We always fill up so do not delay

This year we will not make any changes before race day. Packet pickup is DOR only. Due to emergency information and planning we do not allow transfers or deferrals.
I will order high quality long sleeve soft tech shirts from Leslie Jordan of Portland again this year.
Due to the sidewalk nature of the event we cannot accept wheel chairs, dogs or strollers at the event. 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 4 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 private club run starting from tiny Mt Baker park near Seward Park in Seattle. Runners must park in the neighborhoods off S Ferdinand St and walk a few blocks.
