Heads up for this weekend: The annual Orca Half half-marathon is happening in West Seattle, and hundreds of runners plan to participate. To be specific, organizers tell us, about 600 on Saturday, and about 350 on Sunday..The Orca Half course starts at Lincoln Park and ends at Don Armeni Boat Ramp. We confirmed with race organizers that no road or lane closures are planned – runners are supposed to stay on the sidewalk/trail. Runners will start in waves at 7:30 am; the course will close at 1 pm.

    Any mention of where the 600 runners will be parking etc? This combined with ferry traffic and Saturday kid sports will make Fauntleroy and all side streets by Lincoln park a mad house. I hope everyone will drive carefully and watch for pedestrians.

      If you look at the website, they are shuttled to the starting line.

    They usually close my street to let people park for this… Combined with lowman being closed now, should be interesting.

Sorry, comment time is over.
