Welcome to the new and improved Eastside Subaru Mother's Day Half Marathon & 5K!
After more than 10 years of being recognized as one of the hilliest and most challenging half marathons in the Northwest, we are excited to announce that this year's half marathon route will be significantly flatter. Turning the event into a point-to-point route that utilizes the flat Kirkland waterfront and the new (and very scenic) Cross Kirkland Corridor trail, our half marathon will now compete as being one of the fastest, if not the fastest half marathon in the region. The half marathon event will start at Northwest University at 7:30am while the 5K will start at Juanita Beach Park at 8:00am. Both events will finish at Juanita Beach Park.
As the below course route shows, the new start line for the event is at 327 feet above sea level, with the finish line at Juanita Beach Park sitting at 35 feet above sea level. That's more than 290 feet of downhill running that should support a possible PR!

Along with a screaming fast route, the half marathon also provides one of the most scenic routes around including more than 5.5 miles on the new Cross Kirkland Corridor trail, two miles along the Kirkland waterfront, Marina Park and a flat approachable finish through Juanita Bay Park and the wooden boardwalk.
All half marathon participants will receive a gender specific technical fabric shirt and a high quality finisher medal. Participants in the family friendly 5K run/walk will receive a cotton t-shirt and a scenic tour on the route that goes through Juanita Bay Park. Everyone in attendance will then be treated to the finish line festival on the grass in Juanita Beach Park that will have 25+ exhibitor booths, the free PCC Healthy Kids Kirkland Kids Dash and the awards ceremony. Those 21 & over can celebrate their accomplishment in the onsite wine, mimosa & beer garden. If you own a Subaru, be sure to check out the details on your special parking.
This year's Eastside Subaru Mother's Day Half Marathon & 5K event provides an excellent healthy, community-minded way to celebrate Mother's Day. If you're a mom who runs or walks or you have family members who do, join us this Mother's Day as we all celebrate together!
