Welcome to the Orca Half!  Part of the Orca Running family of races, the Orca Half is a half marathon along the shores of West Seattle, starting and finishing at Don Armeni Park.  The race is being organized in cooperation with Seattle Summer Parkways to encourage people to take advantage of the city’s largest public spaces–the streets!  Runners will enjoy the use of traffic-free roads for the first portion of the run on Alki.  Each participant will receive a gender-specific shirt and finisher’s medal.  The Orca Half benefits the Whale Trail, a Seattle-based non profit dedicated to inspiring appreciation and stewardship of whales, especially orcas.  Click here to learn more.

IMPORTANT PARKING NOTICE: The northern lane (the lane closet to the water) of Alki Avenue, starting at Don Armeni Boat Launch and extending to 63rd Ave SW, will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 9:30am to 4pm.  Runners who park in spots in this area will NOT be able to leave in their car until 4pm.  Click here to view a map of where you should not park.
