We are very happy to welcome back Virginia Mason of Kirkland as our title sponsor once again in 2017 and Eastside Subaru as Presenting Sponsor.  A big thank you to both of them for making this event happen!  The flatter, faster and more scenic point-to-point half course of the past 3 years remains very well  received and will remain the same in 2018.

Our first tier early bird rates are around through thru November 30th, 2017 so register now to get the best deal!

New for 2018! We’ve added medals for all 5K finishers!  These medals will be different from the coveted ½ marathon medals but no less exciting.
