I’ve added another race to my schedule, the Seattle Magazine’s Earth Day 5k on April 20th!
From the Seattle Magazine’s site:
Check-In and race festivities will begin at Bell Harbor International Conference Center. From there, runners will head through the Olympic Sculpture Park and onto the Elliott Bay bike trail. Take in breathtaking views of the Olympics and the oceanfront we are all lucky to call home as you reach Centennial Park and circle back to the Bell Harbor pier for the finish line, complete with sustainable beer garden and awards ceremonies.
The exact race route can be found here.
To entice you to run with me, I have a 15% off discount code for you to use. On the registration form (click here to open a new window) enter RUNWITHWES13 in the coupon field.
I hope to see you there!
The good people at CMY5K have given me a pair of entries to give away to their fun 5K in Seattle!
What exactly is CMY5K?
If you’ve done a traditional 5K, you know they can be a bit bland. But CMY5K is the running equivalent of Dorothy’s house landing on the Wicked Witch. Waves of virginal white runners and walkers will start every 3-5 minutes. Then, at each kilometer, CMY5K staff and volunteers will powder participants in Color Splash Zones. Each zone dispenses a different color; 1K-cyan, 2K-magenta, 3K-yellow, 4K-green, 5K-a combination of all colors. So what if you should accidentally “taste the rainbow?” Not to worry. The powder is 100% natural and safe.
When and where is CMY5K in Seattle?
On Sunday, August 12 2012 at Magnuson Park at 9AM.
