COURSE DESCRIPTION (click image for course map)
For those of you who have checked out the Dash route on this site, studied the map and set your goals for splits on this course, we have some news. As we began our planning for the 29th F5 St. Patrick's Day Dash, we were confronted by a number of construction schedules that were going to impact our event. We worked with the City and neighborhoods and came up with a workable solution to navigate past the North Tunnel Portal and Mercer Corridor construction.
However, much to our pleasure, we were informed that construction would not begin until after March 17th. So, it's business as usual in 2013. If you've run up and down Aurora, high-fiving your friends across the jersey barrier, floated downhill from the Aurora Bridge back to Seattle Center, this year's course is the same as last year.
Also, please disregard the arrows indicating new turns from the Start on the back of your bib#.
All waves start in their traditional location.
Start at 3rd & Mercer. Head east to Dexter. Turn right to Republican, and right to Aurora. Head north to the Aurora Bridge. Turnaround and return to Seattle Center in the southbound lanes. The Finish Line is at 5th & Harrison, right next to EMP.
Enjoy the 29th edition of Seattle's original and largest St. Patrick's Day run/walk. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
