The First Call Running Club is dedicated to promoting good health through distance running. Our events are low key, designed for those who are fairly self sufficient. There are water/Gatorade stops along the way, where you can refill your bottle (no cups on the course). There is food at the start/finish area provided by the club and by potluck donation. There is no cost run. Donations are appreciated, and these keep our runs going. Donations are used to pay for event costs, ie permits, insurance, food, supplies, improvements for future races etc. Left over funds are donated to charity. We are a chartered group of the RRCA. Annual Dues (donation) of $25 is requested for club membership.

The First Call Fall Marathon/Half Marathon/50k.
This will be a low key run along the Sammamish River between Bothell and Redmond Wa. (Just north of Seattle). This is a fun run, a run with friends, which is not certified but is measured, and will count for maniac and fanatic totals.
The course is a paved trail, along the Sammamish River, shared with bicycles and other runners, etc. It is mostly flat. The half marathon is an out and back, the marathon is a double out and back and the 50k has an additional 2.4 mile out and back. This run is designed for the runner who is fairly self sufficient, with minimal support on the trail.
Runners should run with a water bottle, and there will be self service aid stations along the way where you can refill with water or Gatorade. There are no cups on the course. There will be food at the finish, which is also the half way mark for the marathon. There are public rest rooms along the trail.
There is no cost to register, but club membership is required to register.
