Race Report: Ghost of Seattle Marathon & Run Inn the Woods
Saturday, Nov.29th: Ghost of Seattle Marathon: Â Tracy M ran this marathon which occurs the day before the Seattle Marathon. Â It’s put on by the NW Ultras run club. Â Here are two photos of Tracy at this race.
Most would think these are two different races, but Tracy assured me it’s the same race on the same date. Â “We ran in a blizzard for the first hour or so, with high winds and very cold temps. Â Then, the snow stopped, the clouds cleared and we enjoyed sun for the remainder of the day. Â Unfortunately, it stayed pretty cold and windy. Â It was still a lot of fun and the course was really beautiful. Â Great hot food at the finish was particularly welcome.”
Sunday, Nov.30 Â Run Inn the Woods
Great member turnout at Pacific Spirit Park to support one of our club sponsors, the Run Inn. Â Â The Run Inn The Woods started 17 years ago as a memorial run for Run Inn’s close friend who passed away from cancer. Â It is a fundraiser for the BC Cancer Foundation. Â This run has become a memorial to two more close friends of the Run Inn who also past away from cancer. Â It has added significance to our club since this memorial is also for a club member’s niece. Â In keeping with tradition, breakfast and good company was served at the Run Inn after the event.
