This is a stunningly beautiful course in the scenic town of Leavenworth. Marathoners will start near the renown Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area. Runners will run a loop through Icicle Canyon, the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth and through wooded riverfront trails on mixed surfaces of asphalt and dirt trails. Surrounded by impressive mountains, keep your eyes open for salmon spawning in the Wenatchee River and Icicle Creek. The half marathon event welcomes both runners and walkers. The marathon is limited to runners who will complete the course within the six-hour time limit. The half marathon course is open for four hours. Leavenworth is Washington’s “Bavarian Village” located 2 hours east of the Puget Sound bordering the Wenatchee National Forest and Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area. Oktoberfest is Leavenworth’s biggest festival of the year with 3 weeks of music, parades, food (and of course, beverages) and activities for children and adults. A great race will only be part of your unique experience on race weekend!
We are very proud of the partnerships we have forged with the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife, United States Forest Service, Washington State Department of Transportation, Chelan County, the City of Leavenworth, and our friends and neighbors in Leavenworth, without whom this event would not be possible.
The Leavenworth Marathon is operated by TedDriven, an organization that supports cancer research and numerous local charities and organizations. Cancer research is a special interest of the directors. Everyone knows someone who has suffered through cancer, and your race directors have all been directly impacted and are committed to doing their part to fight the disease. TedDriven donates proceeds from the Leavenworth Marathon to the cancer biology lab at the University of Pennsylvania. This lab is making amazing progress in fighting solid tumors genetically. Please check back for updates from the lab on their progress.
