The Course The Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon is a rolling course with hilly sections and scenic views of Downtown Seattle and Lake Washington. They are RRCA and AIMS certified 26.2 and 13.1 mile courses. For your safety, absolutely no dogs, bikes, inline skates, or strollers are allowed on the course. Half Marathon Course: The course starts at 5th Ave. between Harrison and Broad, in front of the Experience Music Project. Entrants will travel through downtown streets, along the shores of beautiful Lake Washington, through the Arboretum and back to the Seattle Center. Marathon Course: Marathon participants will follow the same course as the Half Marathoners with an added section crossing the Lake Washington floating bridge (I-90) and looping around scenic Seward Park. Boston Qualifier: The marathon course is USATF and AIMS certified and can be used as a Boston Marathon qualifier. Spectator Locations: Spectators can watch finishers approach and cross the finish line inside Memorial Stadium. Convenient cheer spots along the course include: • 5th Ave. • Lake Washington Blvd. • Dexter Ave. • Mercer St. (See course map on pages 12 & 13 for details.)

Course Markings/Split Times: Each mile and five-kilometer marker will be clearly labeled on the race courses. Split times will be called at each marker (as permitted by the number of volunteers). Half marathon split times will be electronically recorded and available in marathon results. Water/Aid Stations: Water/Aid stations are approximately every two miles. There are 15 Water/Aid Stations on the full marathon course and 10 on the half marathon course. Refer to the course map for locations.

RACE DAY INFORMATION (continued) Gatorade G Series Pro Endurance Formula is the exclusive and official sports drink of the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon 2012. Gatorade G Series Pro Endurance Formula (Lemon-Lime flavor) is served at each aid station along the course. Gatorade G Series Pro Endurance Formula is a specialized sports drink that contains approximately twice the amount of sodium (200 mg per 8 ounces) of Gatorade Thirst Quencher, along with chloride, potassium, magnesium and calcium to help sustain hydration by more fully replacing what is lost in sweat. Gatorade G Series Pro Endurance formula also contains a 6% carbohydrate solution (14 grams per 8 ounces), just like Gatorade Thirst Quencher, which research shows is optimal to help speed fluid back into the body and fuel working muscles. For more information about Gatorade G Series Pro Endurance Formula, please visit www.gatorade.com/performance. 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.

A Clinical Associate Professor in Rehabilitation Medicine and Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, his clinical interest is overuse injuries in endurance athletes. Dr. Harrast is a competitive runner and triathlete, having run 8 marathons and 4 Ironman triathlons.

alysun deckert, m.s.r.d. Nutrition & the pre-race meal. There’s got to be something magical about it. There has to be something you can eat that will give you more energy than you’ve ever had before and make it feel like you’re flying OVER the wall instead of plowing headfirst into it. It’s true! Alysun Deckert is an avid runner and a registered dietitian at the University of Washington Medical Center. She currently sits on the Advisory Committee for the University of Washington’s Certification program in Sports Medicine and Human Performance.

Risks As with most sports, running a road race involves a number of inherent risks, including but not limited to tripping and falling, contact with other participants or spectators, the effects of weather, traffic and road conditions. 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. PRESENTING SPONSOR South Sound Running

KIDS MARATHON INFORMATION Saturday, November 24, 2012 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 13th 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 or do-right and reading lists, and for training tips visit the Kids Marathon page at www.seattlemarathon.org raCe Day INfo Bib Numbers: Participants must have and wear (pinned to the front) their official Bib Number.

Every child who enters the event will be given two identical bibs — one for the child and one for an accompanying adult. For lost parent/child reasons, both the child and adult bibs will contain the child's information. Young children in strollers will also need to be entered into the event and wearing a bib number to be on the course.
