Course

The race course is held on City streets in Golden Triangle neighborhood.  Streets are closed to traffic, and no parking is permitted on the course during the race.   Start / Finish line is on 12th Avenue at Bannock Street, adjacent the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art.

The course is generally flat, and approximately 1.5km in length.   The race will head east along 12th Avenue and turn south on Acoma at the Evans School.  Racers will enjoy a straight shot down Acoma before turning west on 10th Avenue.  It’s a short block to Bannock, where the race will continue north on Bannock, before turning west (left) on 11th Avenue.  It’s a nice downhill before a quick right on Delaware Street, which brings racers back to 12th Avenue for  right turn towards the finish line.  We are fortunate to still be enjoying these City streets with all the new development and construction!
