26.2 or more (2014 edition)

Published by Steve Campion. Category: Sports & Recreation

Last year’s ultra list was a hit, so we’re bringing it back for 2014.

And why not?  There are enough marathons, ultramarathons, and long distance trail runs in the state to keep your feet hurting all year long. In fact, if you plan your trips well you can hit an organized 26.2 miler or greater almost every weekend of the year.

Below are the organized runs we found to be 26.2 miles or more. In some cases, shorter courses (half-marathons, 30Ks, etc) are associated with these events but they’re incidental as far as this list is concerned. We were only interested in the long run.

If there’s an organized ultra in Washington not listed here, please leave a comment here or on the WA-List Facebook page. We’d love to hear about it.

Note about websites: We tried to identify the official race website or the sponsoring running club for each event. Some of the runs did not have their websites set up or updated for 2014 by our publishing deadline in January. We’ll update the list as best we can throughout the year.  Always double-check race websites for the latest before you commit your running shoes to anything.

SOURCES: We started this list with a dozen well-known marathons in early 2013, then expanded as discoveries warranted. Ultrarunner Linda Barton, pictured in the photo above, offered additional suggestions. Thank you, Linda!  Most of the information on this list came from the running organizations’ websites themselves, 2013-14.
