Run the Howe Street Stairs
Washington › Howe Street Stairs
Added by Colin Ayers
With 388 continuous steps and 160ft of elevation this staircase is a mecca for those who prefer to get fit outdoors. Big bonus: it's a convenient location and there is easy parking.
The Howe Street Stairs are Seattle’s longest continuous stairway, and your quads will confirm this fact after you’ve done a few sets of repeats. This is a great place to raise your heart rate and get some exercise outside of the gym. If you’re up for it, throw in some push-ups and sit-ups in between sets for a full body workout.
The stairs can get a little crowded on evenings and nice weekends, but there is always plenty of room for everyone. People are courteous and friendly, and everyone’s there for the same reason. If you’re walking the stairs, stay to the right to let runners pass.
- Running shoes
- Water bottle
- A good workout mix
- Maybe a friend to carry you home
