The 30th Capital City Marathon in Olympia will be held Sunday, May 15, 2011. Runners and walkers of all ages will take to the streets of Olympia in a test of endurance that is as much mental as it is physical.
The Marathon begins in front of the Old Capitol building next to Sylvester Park in Downtown Olympia and takes runners on a loop out to Boston Harbor then back through South Bay to the neighborhoods around Olympia High School before hitting the home stretch down Capitol Way and the finish line at the southwest side of Sylvester Park.

The event actually kicks off Saturday at 4:00 p.m. with the Kids Fun Run taking off from Heritage Park. Then on Sunday the Capital City Marathon will begin at 7:00 a.m. followed by the half marathon at 7:45 a.m. and the 5 miler at 8:00 a.m.« Back
