26.2 or More (2013)

Published by Steve Campion. Category: Sports & Recreation

NOTE: See the updated 2014 list.

Long-distance running is alive and well in Washington.  Fun Runs of 5k, 12k, and half-marathons abound, but so do races two, three, and four times that long. 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 from February through November.

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.

Note about websites: We tried to identify the official race website or the sponsoring running club.  Some of the runs late in the year did not have their websites set up or updated for 2013 by our publishing deadline.  We’ll update the list as best we can, but double-check those websites for the latest before you commit your running shoes to anything.

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