Thank you Bronsa Swint from On The Ball Fitness for leading a Dynamic Stretching warm up prior to the run!
Just north of the University District, Ravenna Park is one of Seattle’s most-coveted hideaways. It’s easy to forget about the city once you enter the woods. Each course will direct runners through the park with trails lined with large trees that provide a lush canopy and along the creek that flows through the park.
There are three course options for this event:
- 4.1 km (2.6 miles)
- 8.2 km (5.1 miles)
- 12.3 km (7.7 miles)
All courses start and finish by the picnic shelter in the meadow adjacent to the South parking lot off 20th Ave NE and NE 58th St. All courses use the same 4.1 km loop, with low to moderate climb (230 feet per loop) and nicely groomed forested trails. There are a few steeper pitches, but most of the course is gently sloping, as the course takes runners up and down the ravine.
Distances were measured using a measuring wheel, and climb was measured using the altimeter function of a Polar watch.
