Shore to Shore is fast approaching
Wine glasses, beer garden, discounts and more
The 14th-annual Lake Chelan Shore to Shore Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10K is less than three months away (Sept. 12 this year), and we have some updates for you:
— We are again the last Boston Marathon qualifier in the Pacific Northwest. We’ve had dozens of runners take advantage of this distinction in past years as they attempt to quality for the world’s most-celebrated long-distance running event.
— Pre-race packet pickup and dinner will be held at Vin du Lac Winery in Chelan. Vin du Lac also is providing commemorative wine glasses for all marathon finishers.
— Each marathon, half-marathon and 10K participant will receive chip-timing, a technical shirt, and a finisher’s medal. We also are working on upgrading our goodie bags.
— The event’s presenting sponsor, the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, will again host a beer garden at the finish line in Manson.
— The three courses remain the same, with additional traffic control measures being put into place for this year’s event. For the course maps, please click here!
— The race benefits Chelan High School and Manson High School teams and programs, and the local chapter of Girls on the Run.
— For lodging options at Lake Chelan, please click here.
— Also, a big thanks to these sponsors: Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, Northwest Public Radio, Vin du Lac Winery, Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort, the Wenatchee Great Harvest Bread Co., Orchard Bar and KOZI Radio.
That’s it for now! We hope to see you in September at Lake Chelan for one of the more picturesque long-distance running events in the entire Pacific Northwest!
