No matter how exciting you think watching a marathon is, tomorrow’s Seattle Marathon will be twice as exciting for Mercer Islanders to watch. Since Mercer Island is the turnaround point, you can see twice as much race in a short amount of time.
Official and disorienting map of the marathon route with West, not North, up.
The marathon run begins at 8:15 am. If you want to watch, get up to I-90 and find a spot by 8:30 at the latest. The Express Lanes will be closed from 5 am til 11 am for the race.
I personally like to watch marathons (and like to run races of a shorter nature) but I can’t be there tomorrow. If you take go and take photos, upload ’em to flickr and tag them “Mercer Island” and I’ll publish them here.
