Whidbey Island Marathon and Half Marathon

Who's going to run the Whidbey Island Marathon or Half Marathon this April? It looks like it's going to be a fun one, and the more SGLRG participants, the merrier. The full marathon starts at 7:15 am, and the half starts at 8:30 am.  As it gets closer to race date, we can plan more details as to where we all can meet up before the race for pics, motivation, support, and excitement.  See you there!

    Way to go everybody! It was such a perfect day for a race, and the views/course was gorgeous (albeit crazy hilly :) ). Congrats especially to the full marathon folks! And with PRs too, on a hilly course. Impressive. Too bad the shirts were so damn ugly. Good conversation pieces though ;)

    Is there anyone who has done this race before that would have thoughts on where a good meeting place would be, to try and take a SGLRG group photo before the start? I know the full marathoners have a different start point, so any thoughts for either race?

    April 5, 2014

    • Tonya L.

      Windjammer park is the start and finish for the half. Lots of photo opportunities there.

    • Jody R.

      When should we meet for photos?

      April 12, 2014

  • Lisa B.

    Is anyone riding the shuttles in the morning?

    April 12, 2014

    • Amanda

      I'm planning on it. We are staying in Coupville.

      April 12, 2014

    • Danielle C.

      I think we (Meegan, Julie, and myself) might.

    Dinner plan coming together for Saturday night for 6pm at Christopher's on Whidbey: http://www.yelp.com/biz/christophers-on-whidbey-coupeville#query:dinner

    My husband is going to pick up a couple dozen of doughnuts from the Doughnut House in Anacotres. Best doughnuts ever! He does not know all of you and you probably don't know him. So he look for Green Lake shirts to give you a doughnut. :)

    • Tonya L.

      No problem. :)

    For everyone getting there the night before, any suggestions on a place to grab dinner together around 6:30pm? And who wants to join? I can make some calls and get a reservation going.

    For those driving over the 1st ferry leaves at 6:00am, the 2nd at 7:00, give yourself plenty of time to be one of the cars that actually makes it on to the ferry. Check the spring schedule here: http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/pdf/2014Spring.pdf

    If you're taking the bridge be mindful of the bridge closure from 7:15am - 7:45am.

    1. Are there any crazy people who are driving to Whidbey the morning of?

    2. If you are leaving on Saturday, do you need a lodging partner?

    March 28, 2014

    • Nicole F.

      Sure, I know the nightly going rate is about $140 it would be nice to split the cost. We could carpool together over to the island Saturday afternoon however I'm planning on staying later Sunday during the day..

      April 3, 2014

    • Tonya L.

      Thanks. But I think I'll drive up the day of.

    Probably too early to ask... Are you going to stay on the island before the race day? Or, take the ferry over on the race day! I am trying to figure out the dog situation. Thanks.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
