Rock 'N' Roll Seattle Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Registration Open Now

The largest distance running event in the Pacific Northwest! This event includes over 26,000 participants running a marathon (26.2 miles) or half marathon (13.1 miles).  Over 3,000 volunteers help make it possible - including musicians and cheerleaders along the course.

Seattle Center Start/Finish

The race course starts and finishes at Seattle Center. Runners tour some of downtown’s iconic landmarks, head to the shores of glistening Lake Washington, and return downtown for a spectacular finish at Seattle Center beneath the Space Needle.


Live bands and cheer teams are stationed every mile on course to keep up the beat. It’s a 26.2 mile block party! 

The Finish Line Festival & Headliner Concert at Seattle Center are free and open to the public.  Past acts include Keb’ Mo’, Tonic, and Everclear.


Race weekend kicks off with a two-day Health & Fitness Expo, free and open to the public.  Over 60 exhibitors will offer free samples, showcase the latest in running gear, sports apparel, health & nutritional information and much more. All runners must visit the Expo to pickup their race number, swag bag and Brooks t-shirt.


Registration is now open. The race sells out early every year, so runners are encouraged to secure their spot on the start line today!
