New finish area for 2012
This year’s Lake Chelan Shore to Shore Marathon and Half-Marathon (as well as the 10K) will have a new finish spot in downtown Manson.
The finish will be along a two-block stretch on Pedoi Street, between Wapato Way and MacLaren Street. The spot is adjacent to the Manson Bay Park and Marina and about a half-block from downtown businesses.
Previously runners ended on Wapato Way.
The new area will allow organizers to better stage the finish and allow for more room for timing equipment, booths and medical vehicles.
It also will provide a more lively atmosphere for participants and spectators alike.
Organizers worked with the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce on the change.
