We will continue to offer high quality long sleeve hoodie sweatshirts, prizes awarded to the top male and female in each event, great finisher medals and excellent aid / finish recovery areas.
We encourage everyone to bring a blanket to donate at the event. We will donate new and lightly used small and large blankets to the Seattle Humane Society and to the Seattle Outdoor Meal Site.
