The Poulsbo Half Marathon takes its runners on an out-and-back loop along Liberty Bay and into historic downtown Poulsbo. The views along Liberty Bay are some of the prettiest in the area, and you might even see a few seals sunning themselves! The course is mainly road with a short stretch of boardwalk running right over the Bay.
The Half Marathon starts along with the Full Marathon and 10K races at North Kitsap High School on the corner of Mesford & Caldart. All races finish on the track in the High School Stadium. The Half Marathon is USATF certified.
Start time – 7:30am
