Valley runners and walkers compete in Seattle Marathon

Almost 4,000 runners, a few of which were from the Valley, converged on Seattle yesterday morning for the annual running of the Seattle Marathon.

There were a total of four races that entrants could compete in – full and half marathon runs and full and half marathon walks, traversing the streets around Seattle. The field, in addition to the local participants, included athletes from all over the United States and Canada.

Local entrants competed in all of the races. Snoqualmie’s Michelle Temp led all Valley entrants, finishing a strong 19th overall out of 281 walkers in the half-marathon walk. She clocked two hours, 50 minutes, 44 seconds. Duvall’s Jacob Tisdale also had a strong showing – 222nd out of 3,242 runners in the half-marathon run, finishing with a time of 1:40.28.

In the full 26.2-mile run, Snoqualmie’s Nick Gloe led the Valley entrants, clocking 3:35.12 to take 176th out of 1,353 runners entered, and in the full marathon walk, North Bend’s Cindy Dupuy represented her community well. She finished 80th overall with a time of 7:59:01.

The SVSJ offers our congrats to all the local entrants.
