A RUNNER. A HURDLE. AN UNEXPECTED COACH.

T

HIS IS HOW my doctor became my coach. This is not your typical “I got hurt and my doctor made me better” story. Although I did, and he did.

Being new to distance running, there were a lot of things I simply didn’t know, like when my shoes were too old, what pain was bad pain, what diet is optimal for a runner. As a result, I ran in shoes that I shouldn’t have, pushed through pain when I should have stopped, and didn’t fuel my body the way I should. Dr. Harrast (UW Physician, Harborview Medical Center) is my doctor and a competitive triathlete. He knows runners. It was his expertise that got me through shin splints, a turned ankle and a tendon injury. His mentoring guided a smarter training schedule that helped me complete my first marathon. And his support helped give me the confidence to do something else in that first marathon: I qualified for Boston.

RACE DAY INFORMATION (CONTINUED) Gatorade Endurance Formula: As part of a five-electrolyte blend of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and chloride, Gatorade Endurance Formula is a specialized sports drink designed to help sustain hydration during prolonged training and racing when fluid and electrolyte losses can be significant. It contains nearly twice the sodium (200mg) and more than three times the potassium (90mg) of Gatorade Thirst Quencher to help sustain hydration, maintain proper fluid balance and replace the critical electrolytes lost in sweat during these occasions. Gatorade Endurance Formula (Lemon-Lime) is the official on-course sports drink of the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon and will be available approximately every 2 miles beginning at mile 2. Race Time Limit: All event routes will be opened to regular vehicular traffic at 2:15pm. This allows for a seven-hour Marathon Walk finish and a six-hour Marathon Run finish. There will be limited on-course aid stations, Course Marshals and police support after the course closes. Participants may continue along the course after the official closure by obeying all standard traffic control devices. Finish Line staff and essential services will remain until every athlete has completed the event. Additionally, all marathon participants still on the I-90 floating bridge after 10:30am will be bussed to the end of the bridge and allowed to finish the marathon. (This allows for a 25 min/mile pace for walkers and an 18 min/mile pace for runners.) Wheelchair Competition: Wheelchair athletes are welcome to compete in the Marathon and Half Marathon races. Both courses are fully paved and provide wheelchair athletes the opportunity for unbridled competition. The lead wheelchairs will have an escort throughout the race. Competitors must wear hard shell helmets and wheelchairs must be adequately equipped for safety. Wheelchair competitors should especially note the risks regarding the nature of the course such as bollards and the possibility of other traffic on the course. Medical Assistance: Provided by our Official Medical Coverage Sponsor, UW Medicine. If medical assistance is required on the race course, contact one of the orange-capped radio operators, who can call for emergency assistance or van transportation if required. If you drop out, please notify an aid station attendant, radio operator or anyone inside the information booth in the Victory Recovery Area so the information can be relayed to the event support staff. Risks: As with most sports, participating in a marathon or half marathon involves a number of inherent risks, including but not limited to tripping and falling, contact with other participants or spectators and the effects of weather, traffic and road conditions. Because the courses are run on roads, streets and trails, there are posts and possible potholes. Additionally, there may be other foot and bicycle traffic on the course. All participants need to be prepared to avoid obstacles and traffic. In submitting your entry, you are acknowledging your awareness and assumption of all risks associated with your participation. You are certifying that you are medically and physically fit to safely compete in this event.

Safety Rules: The Seattle Marathon Association is a member of the Road Runners Club of America and as such is required through its membership insurance to exclude entrants with bicycles, skateboards, baby joggers or strollers, roller skates, roller blades or animals. iPods may be used, but are not encouraged by RRCA or the Seattle Marathon Association. For safety reasons, if a course official asks you to remove your listening device, please do so. Entrants choosing to violate these safety conditions pose a danger to all participants. Persons found in violation of these safety rules will be disqualified and removed from the course. THE FINISH LINE Victory Recovery Area: Medical attention, hot soup and other refreshments will be available in the Victory Recovery Area, located in the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. There will be designated changing areas for men and women as well as a DJ for your entertainment. Family and friends are invited to relax and celebrate with their finishers in the family reunion area in the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. Massage, Acupuncture and Chiropracty: The Washington Sports Massage Team (WSMT), Bastyr University and Washington State Chiropractic Association (WSCA) will be located in the Victory Recovery Area (Seattle Center Exhibition Hall). WSMT will provide a 15-minute professional sports massage to finishers for a $18 fee. Massages can be purchased on site or in advance using the entry form. Bastyr University will be providing acupuncture to finishers free of charge. WCSA will be assisting UW Medicine at the finish line as well as providing chiropractic care in the Victory Recovery Area. Photographs: MarathonFOTO is the Official Photographer and Videographer of the 2014 Seattle Marathon Family of Events. All marathon and half marathon run and walk finishers will be photographed and recorded on video. A photo proof will be emailed to each finisher within one week of the event. Enlargements can be ordered through MarathonFOTO. For more information, call 800.424.3686, 8:30am to 5:30pm (EST) Monday through Friday, or visit them on the web at marathonfoto.com. Awards: Overall awards will be presented to the top three men and women finishers in both the Marathon and Half Marathon events. Awards will be presented to the top ten men and women in each age division in both the Marathon and Half Marathon as follows: 19 and under, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85 and over.

Because the race is run on roads, streets and trails, there are posts and possible potholes along the course. Additionally, there may be other foot and bicycle traffic on the course. All participants need to be prepared to avoid obstacles and traffic. In submitting your entry, you are acknowledging your awareness and assumption of all risks associated with your participation. You are certifying that you are medically and physically fit to compete in this event safely.

Timing The race is timed by Accustat Sports Timing on a USATF-certified course using ChronoTrack tag technology. All 5K Race participants must wear a chip as instructed in order to appear in the results. Awards Awards are presented 6 deep in 5-year incremental age divisions for the 5K race. First, second and third place men's and women's finishers for active military personnel will also receive awards. Masters division competitors are defined as 40 years old and older. Masters division runners are eligable for both overall awards and masters division awards. Overall Wheelchair Division awards will be presented to the fastest male and female wheelchair finishers.

KIDS MARATHON INFORMATION Saturday, November 29, 2014 at 10am Seattle Center Memorial Stadium / $20

The Seattle Children's Kids Marathon promotes fitness, reading and good deeds for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade. Kids complete a full 26.2 mile marathon at a rate that is fun and safe for their growing bodies — one mile at a time. Kids are also encouraged to read 13 books and perform 13 “Do Rights.” On Race Day, the kids gather at Seattle Center to complete the final 1.2 miles together in a celebratory event that includes kids-style medals, finisher certificates, space blankets, t-shirts, goody bags, food and lots of fun! THE COURSE On Race Day: Kids run the last 1.2 miles of their “marathon” together starting at 5th and Harrison, next to the Experience Music Project. They run around the Seattle Center, past the Space Needle and down Mercer Street, finishing their marathon in Memorial Stadium. See the course map at www.seattlemarathon.org for details. Leading up to Race Day: Kids run or walk the first 25 miles of their “marathon” one mile (or ½ mile) at a time on a safe, secure route designated by parents, coaches or teachers. The program should take 6-8 weeks to complete depending on the fitness level of your child. A less active child may need to start earlier to complete the program. As they are completing their miles, kids also complete their reading and do-rights (good deeds). For suggested books and do-right ideas, visit the Seattle Children's Kids Marathon pages at www.seattlemarathon.org. Marathoners can keep track of their progress with the trackers provided on the website. Register by November 17th and you will receive via mail, the trackers, instructions, tokens and award certificates to be given to your child as he/she completes the miles, books and do-rights. If your child registers with a school group, these materials will be given to the school leader for distribution. To download and print trackers for running, reading and "dorights," as well as to access training tips, visit the Kids Marathon page at www.seattlemarathon.org/Kids/eventinfo.php RACE DAY INFO Bib Numbers: Participants must have and wear (pinned to the front) their official Bib Number. Kids running with groups must get their bibs from their group leaders or let their group leaders know that they are picking their bibs up individually. Parents and group leaders may pick up bibs at the following times and locations: Friday, November 28th, 2014 EXPO, The Westin Seattle, Downtown Seattle 11am-8pm (see page 3 for more info on EXPO)

Start: Kids, parents, teachers and coaches will move as a group from Memorial Stadium to the Start Line on 5th Avenue. Parents are encouraged to accompany their marathoners to the Start Line even if they are not running with them. Finish: After the kids cross the finish line, they receive water and a Space Blanket and then proceed through a secure finisher chute to the Victory Recovery Area, located in the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. There, the kids reunite with family and friends to enjoy post-event festivities with Radio Disney and receive their finisher shirt, medal, certificate and Goody Bag. Note: One t-shirt is provided per registered child.
