review of 2011 Whidbey Island Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

The scenery is gorgeous, with views of the Ocean and on a clear day views of the Olympic Mountains, Cascades and Mount Rainier! A challenging rather hilly course but that just keeps it interesting. Well supported, great finish line with lots of good food.

Race Tips

The weather can be unpredictable so be prepared to run in the rain, wind and sun if your lucky!

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Flyers has good food and great beer for refueling after the race! Parking is not a problem, catch the buses to the start line which there are plenty of. This is a well organized smaller event, well worth it!
