We’re proud of the fact that City to the Sea has become such a great race for top-level athletes and beginning runners and walkers alike. Everyone has different goals depending on their life situation, running history and other factors. If you’re already a competitive runner with ample training, check out the winning times and course records below from past winners. These runners have set the bar high, but there is always room for someone new at the top so get inspired, get out there and get it done!
Note: the course was changed in 2007, so this list only includes the times and records for the current course (the one you’ll be running). Pre-running the course is best, but if you can’t make it out beforehand be sure to check out our Mile-by-Mile blog posts for race tips on each section of the course!
