Register: You can register online here for the 5k for $30 and the 10k for $35. There is also a free kid’s dash.
The 5k course starts by running south towards SW Allen Blvd. on SW Arctic. At Allen, the route takes a left and heads west to the intersection of Allen and SW Scholls Ferry. A hard right puts you on the Fanno Creek Trail, which is a wide, shaded, paved path with many curves, little bridges, and few inclines. The 5k turnaround is on the path before it reaches SW 105th.
The 10k course is a bit more challenging. It starts on the same route as the 5k course, but instead of turning around before reaching SW 105th, participants will keep heading south to SW Denney Road and make a right to go up and over the 217. It’s not a huge hill; but it has the potential to slow things down if you’re not prepared. After flying over the highway, the course has a nice downhill, and then takes a left and gets back on the Fanno Creek Trail and running all the way to SW Hall before turning back. Upon reaching Denney again, the route crosses Denney and makes a short out-and-back on SW 111th before turning around and coming back to Denney. From there, it’s back up over the 217 and to the trail and the finish line.
