West Seattle Runner is once again hosting us, this time for our "packet" pick-up party. Stop by the store on Friday night between 4:00-8:00pm to grab your shirt and bib, and maybe even a cookie or two. It will make Saturday morning SO MUCH EASIER!!
And, if you missed your chance to register in person, we'll be accepting registrations at the party! So bring your buddies, and cash or check only. You can also buy kids shirts and extra prize raffle tickets, both available for $5 each.

Our route once again takes us through lovely Lincoln Park in West Seattle, WA. We are changing up the start and finish area this year. We will start the race in the South end of the park, near the Zipline park, do a double loop in the upper trails, then end back at the starting line. 5k start time: 9:05am
Look for our route marking signs along the way, as well as our AMAZING course marking volunteers:
Little Monsters' Dashes
We will have 2 Little Monsters' Dashes again this year. Both will start at or near the 5k start/finish line. Both races are FREE for all kids to enter and run. And if your kid wants you to run with them? No sweat. You can run these for free, too!
- The Littlest Monsters Dash: 30 meters for the preschool-age set. Starts at 10:00am. Medals for all finishers
- The Little Monsters Dash: 250 meters for the school-age, 9 and under set. Starts immediately after the Littlest Monsters Dash concludes. Medals for all finishers.
Cross your fingers for better weather this year!
