About Seattle Marathon Association
In 1970, a group of friends from the University of Washington decided to hold their own running event: 38 of them participated, and 31 completed the full 26.2 miles that compose a marathon. It was a humble genesis for the Seattle Marathon, which has steadily grown into one of the largest running events in the country. In fact, in 2017, more than 15,000 people are expected to participate, descending upon the Emerald City from all 50 states and even from beyond American borders.
The Seattle Marathon Association (SMA) nurtures the event's year-to-year success. Governed by a 10-member board of directors, this non-profit organization strives to hold the best race possible—for the runners, sure, but also for the sponsors and local economy. That's part of the reason why each event's course—be it the full marathon or the August 10K—takes into account space for spectators, who can watch the race at several viewing posts in case they can't manage to sling a saddle over the back of a transport bird.
