SPECTATOR AREAS ARE LIMITED ALONG THE JOHN WAYNE AND SNOQUALMIE TRAILS, HOWEVER THERE ARE A FEW AREAS YOU CAN DRIVE TO. REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS WALK FROM THE FINISH AREA UP THE COURSE. IT'S A BEAUTIFUL WALK AND WAIT FOR YOUR RUNNER.
MARATHON MILE 13 (HALF MARATHON START)
Directions from North Bend to the Half Marathon start and MILE 13 of the Marathon: Take I-90 E, Take Exit 38 toward State Patrol Fire Training Academy. Turn right onto SE Homestead Valley Rd and drive 1.75 miles.
Once the race has started, you can drive up the trail to the marathon course. Note: The road is "pretty rough" which is why the buses don't drive it. Most front wheel drive and pick up trucks can make the drive.
MARATHON MILE 21 (HALF MARATHON MILE 9)
Directions for North Bend FINISH LINE: Head NW on North Bend Way and turn left on Cedar Falls RD. Stay on Cedar Falls Rd for 4.4 miles until you reach the parking lot. You can walk over to the Snoqualmie Trail.
