February Freakin Fun Run

Saturday, February 6, 2021

Interbay, near Magnolia to Lincoln Park Pool

Running a marathon a month should keep us in shape for when big time racing returns so here is a February option for all you running peeps out there.  I am not sure I can get support for you at the half way point with the West Seattle Bridge out of commission so you may be on your own to find support.  There are several stores and a Starbucks on the course to get water and snacks.

After you run, the start/finish is near the incredible Seven Hills Running Shop, so make sure you take a minute to stop by and support a local small business.  Seven Hills Running Shop, 3139 W. Government Way, Seattle, WA 98199

Course Directions:


This course starts in Magnolia down behind the Interbay golf course near the train tracks.  You will park on the local streets and begin your run at Thorndyke Ave W. and 20th Ave W.  You will run down the 20th Ave W. road and see the trail straight ahead of you.  Follow the Elliot Bay Trail south all the way to Myrtle Edwards Park and the Sculpture Park where the trail spits you out onto Alaskan Way.  Continue South on Alaskan Way even though MapMyRun wants you to leave Alaskan Way, stay on it until you see a trail on your right, take this trail, the Elliot Bay Trail.  Stay on the trail and Alaskan Way until it turns into E. Marginal Way.  Before Spokane St. the trail goes to the right to head West.  The trail now becomes West Seattle Bridge Trail and will take you up and over the lower West Seattle Bridge.  Follow the trail until you take a Right on Harbor Ave. W.  You will now follow this trail all the way to South West Seattle and Lincoln Park.  Just past the Colman Outdoor Pool in Lincoln Park you will turn around and return the same way you came.

The Marathoners will turn around just past the Me-Kwa-Mooks Park at S.W. Jacobson Rd.

The 50Kers will turn around just past the Colman Pool where the two trails merge.

If you really only want to do a half marathon, you would turn around at the Duwamish Waterway just when the trail turns in to the West Seattle Bridge Trail.
