Location: Race start and finish on the western side of Lake Union Park. Look out for tents and the start line along Westlake Ave N, across from the Courtyard Hotel at Westlake and Aloha St N.

The start is convenient to downtown and convention hotels – just over 1 mile from the Washington State Convention Center. There are several easy options to get there:

South Lake Union Trolley: Leaves from 5th Ave and Olive, just across from Westlake Mall. Runs every 15 minutes from 6:00am-11:00am. Leaves Lake Union Park at Terry and Mercer St. Cost $2.50 each way. http://seattlestreetcar.com/slu.htm

Walk: You can walk to the race, it will take you about 20 minutes at an easy pace. Walk north on 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th Ave until you get to Westlake Ave N. Continue on Westlake until you get to Lake Union Park.

Cab: You can hail any taxi and ask to be taken to Lake Union Park. The drive is about 5 minutes and will probably cost about $9 plus tips.

Yellow Cab: 206-622-6500,
Orange Cab: 206-522-8800,
Seattle Taxi: 206-246-9999,

Bus: Catch the number 62 from the corner of Blanchard and 4th Ave, heading north. Get off at Westlake and Mercer St, walk north on Westlake one block. Takes 10 minutes to get to park. Fare: $2.50 each way.

This Year’s Cause: Coffee women around the world!

Fundraising: We’ve set up a fundraising site specifically for JavaJog 2017. Teams and individuals are encouraged to spread the word and collect donations. Prizes will be awarded for the top three fundraisers this year.

VOLUNTEER! We are still looking for volunteers for race morning! If you have friends or family who wish to support your efforts please encourage them to volunteer! Sign up here.
