Race Report: Ghost of Seattle Marathon & Run Inn the Woods

Saturday, Nov.29th: Ghost of Seattle Marathon:   Tracy M ran this marathon which occurs the day before the Seattle Marathon.  It’s put on by the NW Ultras run club.  Here are two photos of Tracy at this race. Image 1Image

Most would think these are two different races, but Tracy assured me it’s the same race on the same date.  “We ran in a blizzard for the first hour or so, with high winds and very cold temps.  Then, the snow stopped, the clouds cleared and we enjoyed sun for the remainder of the day.  Unfortunately, it stayed pretty cold and windy.  It was still a lot of fun and the course was really beautiful.  Great hot food at the finish was particularly welcome.”

 

Sunday, Nov.30  Run Inn the Woods

Great member turnout at Pacific Spirit Park to support one of our club sponsors, the Run Inn.   The Run Inn The Woods started 17 years ago as a memorial run for Run Inn’s close friend who passed away from cancer.  It is a fundraiser for the BC Cancer Foundation.   This run has become a memorial to two more close friends of the Run Inn who also past away from cancer.  It has added significance to our club since this memorial is also for a club member’s niece.   In keeping with tradition, breakfast and good company was served at the Run Inn after the event.
