2 HIGH BRIDGE PARK Let the kids or the dog run around at High Bridge Park while waiting for the runners to come down the first big hill and over Latah Creek.
FORT GEORGE WRIGHT DRIVE If you can get there by back roads, get an up-close view of the race and a stunning view of the Spokane landscape. 3
BROWNE’S ADDITION Cheer on the elite runners as they fly by on Riverside Avenue, then grab coffee or brunch on Pacific Avenue before the later waves of runners flood the street.
DOOMSDAY HILL Runners say this is where they appreciate fans the most, and for a good reason. The Nixon Rodeo will be providing entertainment by the TJ Meenach Bridge.
5 WEST CENTRAL The biggest hill is behind the runners now, but there’s still a ways to go. Cheer on runners as they turn south onto Lindeke and rock out with the costumed SpoCon volunteers.
THE START Because of tighter security in wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, spectators won’t be allowed to mingle with runners in the starting area this year.
6 BROADWAY AVENUE The homestretch in West Central is a convenient spot to to camp out if you’re meeting someone at the finish, and you can check out all the construction in Kendall Yards. Plus, you can truthfully yell, “Almost there!”
THE FINISH Runners can reunite with their families and fans at Riverfront Park. Lost and found will be at the entrance of City Hall.
