Run the Beautiful Shores of Lake Chelan

We love our lake! We’re getting better all the time!

Welcome to the 2014 Lake Chelan Shore to Shore Marathon, Half-Marathon and 10K — Washington state’s premier destination marathon event! Here’s the date for our 2014 event: Saturday, Sept. 6.

We had a great 2013 race and again witnessed strong growth! Over the past couple years, we have grown from a 200-runner event to a 600-runner event. We attribute that largely to listening closely to feedback from runners. As a result, we now have 15 aid stations and additional traffic control on the course; we now give out finisher medals (along with Greenlayer official commemorative shirts); and we now have a more efficient bus shuttle service (all three runs are point-to-point). Coming in 2014: Chip timing and a more well-rounded finishing area.

Lake Chelan Shore to Shore Marathon and Half-Marathon are USA Track and Field certified. Both courses begin on the south side of the 55-mile-long lake and follow the shoreline through the quaint town of Chelan and then on to the community of Manson on the lake’s north side. The course is generally flat with some hills in the beginning and then again between Chelan and Manson. As anyone who has done this race will reaffirm, the views of the lake and the Cascade Mountains and vineyards are incredible!

We also offer a 10-kilometer run — which has been growing in popularity — that begins on the north shore and ends in Manson.

To make the three runs a reality, we rely on a dedicated group of volunteers, many of whom are students in the Lake Chelan School District. In exchange for their help, we donate funds to their school-sanctioned groups.

Everyone involved in this event shares a common thread — a love of the sport of long-distance running and of this treasured lake. We celebrate the place that is Lake Chelan and the special memories it holds in the hearts of many.
