Prepare yourself for a running event like no other. Romance. Kitsch. Sweat. My Better Half Marathon is a celebration of running, romance and rom-coms. There are 4 categories: Bromance (two guy friends), Besties (two girl friends), Lovers (romantically involved) and Lonely Hearts (self-explanatory). Join Orca Running, February 11, 2018 as we celebrate love in all it's forms!

Lover's registration is for couples of all kinds! Bestie's registration is for two girlfriends, mom and daughter, or anyone you call your bestie. Bromance registration is for two dudes who probably don't want to admit that they're inseparable. Lonely Heart's registration is for those currently enjoying being single or looking for love.

Relay option is for 2 people who as a team will complete the 13.1 miles in a relay style fashion (only available for the Half Marathon). 

The course is pretty simple and is a loop around Seward Park. 5K participants will just do Loop A and be done. 10K participants will do Loop A and then Loop B and be done. Half marathon participants will do Loop A once, then a 5 mile Loop C twice.  If participating in the relay it's up to you to decide in which manner you'd like to run the three loops.

Your entry comes with long sleeve zip up running top, finisher medal, a hot post race meal, free race photos, and more!

The My Better Half Marathon supports Habitat for Humanity of King County.
