Attractions: Music Row
Music Row is arguably what put Nashville on the map, so any trip to Nashville HAS to include a visit to the famed district. Music Row is the heartbeat of Nashville and the center of the country music industry. It’s the district where the vast majority of Country, Gospel and Christian music is produced, recorded, and published. Music Row famously features live music at nearly all hours of the day, so stopping by either before or after your race will give you the perfect taste of Nashville.

Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream
from kitchen to cone, every scoop is the result of hard working, happy staff, strong local partnerships, sustainable practices, and of course, the finest ingredients we can source.
Top Pot Doughnuts and Coffee
Treats (Top Pot Doughnuts): Top Pot was recommended by virtually every runner we talked to - locals, visitors, basically any human. There are multiple locations throughout the city which makes it impossible to NOT stop by at some point during race weekend. PLUS, they hosted a Doughnut Dash in April, so clearly they get us! They’re house-roasted coffee and old-fashioned donut skills make this a must-visit shop.
The 5 Spot
Post-Race Brunch (5 Spot): Located just 1-mile away from the Marathon and Half-Marathon finish in Queen Anne, 5 Spot is a perfect spot to grab brunch post-race and celebrate your accomplishments. They are known for their witty themed-menus and decor, and they serve breakfast until 3pm (note they are closed 3-5 pm). 5 Spot does not take reservations, but once you order the food comes out quickly (because we know you’ll be starving by then!).
Home - Space Needle
Attractions (Space Needle): This iconic landmark offers great views of the downtown Seattle skyline, the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, and Elliot Bay. It’s undergoing construction so be warned that parts of the Observation Deck are closed as part of the renovation. If you do want to visit, buy a combo ticket with the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit.

Brooks Trailhead Store | Running Shoe Store in Seattle | Brooks Running
Running Store (Brooks Trailhead): The Fremont neighborhood is worth a dedicated visit for the hip bars, restaurants, shops, and the Brooks Trailhead store located within Brooks Global Headquarters. The staff here lives and breathes the Brooks mantra of “Run Happy,” and they’re ready to help you find your sole mate!
Green Lake - Outer Loop
Shake-Out Routes (Green Lake Outer Loop): If you’re staying North of downtown, the Green Lake Loop Trail is a popular spot for locals. The trail is 3.1miles of uninterrupted path in one of Seattle’s most beloved parks. The path is well-trafficked, so there will be lots of other runners, walkers, and four-legged friends to distract you on your run 😉, If crowds aren’t your thing, be sure to head there early!
Running Stores (SHOES-n-FEET): Just across Lake Washington in Bellevue you should head to SHOES-n-FEET for your race weekend needs. If you want to celebrate race weekend with a new pair of kicks, you can get fitted by the friendly and knowledgeable staff (be sure to try out the new Brooks Levitate!).
The Pink Door
The Pink Door is an independently owned restaurant that has been quietly dedicated to fresh & local Italian food since 1981. Its seafood & produce driven menu has been the central theme throughout its wildly popular domain in Seattle's Pike Place Market.
Running Shoes | Walking Shoes
Running Stores (Fleet Feet Sports Seattle): The Seattle Fleet Feet is about 1 mile from the downtown hotels, making it a quick stop if you need something last-minute on race weekend. The location is locally-owned, and the store invests throughout the year in the local running community. If you find yourself in Seattle Thursday night, be sure to join their Pub Run at 6pm! There, um, will be beer 😉.
rachel's ginger beer - fresh ginger beer made in seattle
Post-Race Drinks (Rachel’s Ginger Beer): Oh how we wish all cities had this magic gem! There’s a treat for anyone and everyone to enjoy. Homemade ginger beers (rbg) include flavors like pink guava and spicy pineapple. They turn these into delicious cocktails including the option to build your own Mule. Your own Mule!!! AND you can turn your rgb into a soft serve float, or even better a boozy float!! You may need to roll out of this place - but hey, you deserve it!
