Magnuson Series 5k | 10k | 15k | Kids
August 17 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
About the series…
In 2007 we put on our first Earth Day run in Bellingham, WA. Getting people to enjoy the outdoor via running and walking as well as participating in bettering our environment we thought was a worthy cause. So after our first event we decided to turn the race into a monthly series. Here we are today proudly presenting “a series for all seasons!” Join us for monthly running and walking events for individuals, duos, and groups, based at beautiful Magnuson Park on the shores of Lake Washington in northeast Seattle. Rain or shine, wind or calm, we’ll be here to help you meet your fitness goals and new friends at the same time!
The Magnuson Series is part of the organization Earth Runs whose mission is to encourage outdoor activities and enhancing our natural environment. The series goal is to provide low cost fitness events for all ability levels and at the same time fundraising for tree plantings around the city. Over the years we have planted over 5,000 trees. We also partner with other nonprofits to help them fundraise at our events, such as Teen Feed, Feeding America, the Mangrove Action Project, CNW youth team and more. The entry fee is a donation to our organization so we can continue to do the great work that we do.
About the course…
We keep the same course each month so you can have a measurement for improvement. Our easy to follow 5k loop allows you to easily gauge where you are which helps with maintaining your pace. Some dates include half marathons, obstacle dashes, duathlons, or other special events. Check the website for start times and details.
After you arrive to the park, head down to the start line and you will see the registration booth which will have bib number pick-up for pre-registered participants as well as offer day of race registration. The registration booth will open up 1.5 hours before the event start and you can pick up your bib number or register day of race. Most events start at 10am but refer to the schedule below for the exact start time. For the best parking spots we advise you arrive an hour early. The 400 meter kids dash starts 15 minutes before the event.
We do not have an official awards ceremony unless specified on the event page. We do not give out age graded awards but do have finishers medals upon request. We will post your time and a results page by the next business day online on our results page. You can use this time if you need a qualifying time for a different event.
