Run, watch, or get out of the way: The Rock ‘n Roll Seattle Marathon is tomorrow

It’s a great Seafair event — runners charging through the city, and live music every mile along the way. We’ve got lots of info about the Marathon (and Half Marathon) for runners, fans, and the rest of us who might need to make our way around town on Saturday morning. Hit this link for everything you need to know.

The event actually starts at 7:00am, but the main thing to watch for well before the race will be street closings, and the one that affects the most people is probably the closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. The northbound lanes of Highway 99 will be closed from Hudson Street on the south to Roy Street beginning at 5:00am on Saturday morning until 3:00pm Saturday afternoon. Here’s a handy guide to the schedule for all the street closings.

Here’s a course map for the full or half Marathon.

If you’re going, have a great run, and be careful out there!
