From its humble beginnings in 1970 when a group of friends from the University of Washington decided to hold their own marathon, the Seattle Marathon Family of Events has grown into one of the top ten largest combination marathon/half marathon in the U.S.
That first marathon 45 years ago sported 38 runners. This year, around 15,000 participants completed the marathon and half marathon walking and running events.
A single Strider represented the club in the 2015 Seattle Marathon and put in an absolutely staggering performance. A wonderful race by David Palmer saw him finish 5th overall and claim victory in a strong Male Masters category.
The male race was won by Steve Slaby in 2:38:15 and first female was Sophia Liu finishing in 2:58:39. Full results available online.
