NEW! We are beyond excited to bring Tracktown: The Movie to Olympia the Friday of Race Weekend! The semiautobiographical indie comedy stars and was co-written and co-directed by Alexi Pappas, who in real life is one of the world's fastest runners. Get your tickets soon for the 6:30 p.m. May 19 showing at the historic Capitol Theater: It is the only one scheduled in Olympia! Confirmed 2017 CCM race registrants save $5 on admission. Order tickets and watch a trailer of the movie here:

Thank you to the Olympia Film Society for making this exclusive engagement possible.

"Tracktown" has not yet been rated, but is likely to align with "PG-13."

The Capital City Marathon Association is thrilled to host Olympian Jeff Galloway again in 2017! We wish to express our thanks to Jeff for graciously sharing his experience and knowledge with the Olympia running community!

Running School: Sign up for Jeff Galloway's Running School on Saturday, May 20, from 8:30 - 11:30 at the Governor Hotel. Space is limited. For more information and to register visit Jeff Galloway's website.

Pre-race dinner and talk: Mr. Galloway will give an inspirational talk at our pre-race dinner being held at Waterstreet Café at 5 p.m. Saturday, May 20. This was one of the highlights of the weekend for many of last year's participants. Seating is limited; register soon.

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.   

Capital City Marathon Association (CCMA) is a non-profit all volunteer organization.

Capital City Marathon is proud to announce that race photos will be free to participants as a digital download thanks to support from South Sound Running 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.
