At a top level, here’s how the courses are laid out:
Half Marathon follows E., W. and N. Mercer Way around Mercer Island
10K heads east across Mercer Island’s north end, then cuts back to the west side, then back to the start
5K heads east side across Mercer Island’s north end, then back to the start
NOTE: We will have three NUUN electrolyte enhanced drink stations set up – at the third, sixth and twelfth miles of the Half Marathon course (Water Stations #3, #4 and #7). Water Station #7 is also at the fourth mile of the 10k course. For a nutrition boost, there will be a CLIF shot station at the eighth mile of the Half Marathon course (Water Station #5).
Please keep in mind:
All events (March 19) and the Race Village (March 18-19) take place at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center. Check for signs posted at all Mercer Island I-90 exits when you arrive. The Pre-Race Expo, on Saturday, March 18, will be held in the Gym on the lower level of the Community Center.
