Celebrating 37 years of running in Kent! The Christmas Rush is for many a kick off to the holiday season. Both the 5k run/walk and the 10k run are along the Green River Trail. The routes are flat and smooth and perfect for those going for time or a morning walk. We're looking forward to seeing everyone in December!
First 400 participants 13 and under are FREE courtesy of Tab Wizard!
10k Course The 10k runners will do a big loop. Runners will start on Russell Road and head south to Meeker St. and turn right. Once over the bridge, turn north on Frager Road and run to 212th. At 212th turn right to go over the river and then turn right again to head south on Russell Road. Follow Russell Road to finish located in front of city shops building on 240th.
5k Course The 5k course is a modified out and back. Runners will start on Russell Road and head south to Meeker St. and turn right. Once over the bridge, turn north on to Frager Road remembering to stay on the left side of the road. (Running clockwise) Turn around at the appropriate spot and stay to your left side on the return trip. Runners will turn left and go over foot bridge that leads to golf course. Once over foot bridge, turn north on to the trail along the river. Follow to finish located in front of city shops building on 240th.
Dogs and Strollers While we love to see your pups, we've decided that its best that they stay at home during the Christmas Rush. The number of people on the course and the tight quarters at the start lead us to the decision. We just don't need anyone getting caught up in a leash out on the course.
We do allow strollers. We simply ask that you position yourself appropriately at that start.
