Register for the 2016 Capital City Marathon

The Capital City Marathon (CCM) will hold its 35th annual event in May 2016. To commemorate our anniversary, we are collecting memories from people who have run in the race and/or have helped make it run. For the 35 weeks leading up to the race, one response will be posted to social media weekly. See the Celebrating 35 Years page to see all of the memories.

The Capital City Marathon Association is thrilled to host Olympian Jeff Galloway in celebration of the 35th anniversary. See more information about the schedule of events that include Jeff Galloway on the Information page, including the registration for his Running School on Saturday, May 14th.

Event Photography will be provided by Evan Pilchik Photography.
Capital City Marathon is proud to announce that race photos will be free to participants as a digital download! This year, my EP events will be on the race course for the marathon, half marathon, five miler, and kids run taking the same fun and exciting images of you that you expect. The Capital City Marathon will allow you to download your images for free!

Volunteers are always needed and appreciated!

We've said it before and we mean it: Our race would not happen without volunteers and we are looking to fill some key positions this year. Read this Thurston Talk article (from 2015) to learn more about why volunteers are so important to and how you can become involved with the Capital City Marathon. (Being a runner is not a requirement!). To volunteer, please choose the Volunteer link on our registration page.

Welcome to Capital City Marathon, one of the best marathons in the Northwest. Located in fun and friendly Olympia, Washington, we feature a beautiful course with rolling hills, enthusiastic volunteers, a festive post-race event with food, music, massage and swag.  We are a Boston Marathon qualifier with a loyal following of marathon veterans, newcomers and everyone in between.
