Event Information
Seward Park is the ideal place for a 5k with a 3.1 mile loop around the peninsula. Public restrooms will be available along course. Please check back for map of race course.

Please help us reach our goal of $5,000 to help the students and families of Beacon Hill International School (BHIS). BHIS will be losing its after school enrichment program as of 6/2018 and will need funds to implement and support a new enrichment program for the 2018-2109 school year as well as provide scholarships for the approximate two-thirds of our student population who are eligible for free or reduced lunch. The PTA also funds other great programs and community-building events.

Another way to help the school is to cut out Box Tops and bring them during packet pick-up or on race day.

Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support!
We will be using gun time to determine all award winners.

The top male and female winners of the 5k run will receive a grand prize each. There will also be a prize for the top winner of each age group for the 5k run. Race participants must be present to collect their awards. Prizes include adult lift ticket to Stevens Pass, Bartell gift card, Grocery Outlet gift card, and more.
