Ghost of Seattle Marathon
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)
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.
SEATTLE GHOST IS THE BEST MICRO MARATHON IN THE COUNTRY!
Due to the sidewalk nature of the event we cannot accept wheel chairs, dogs or strollers at the event.
