About This Activity

The 7th annual Run for Rett 5K Run, 5K walk, and Kids Dash takes place on a scenic  course along Capitol Lake. It starts at the Tumwater Historical Park and utilizes the trails in the park and along the lake for a beautiful run or walk. There is only one gradual hill up and a quick downhill on an otherwise flat and fast course. You finish the last half mile running through the trails at the park with music & cheers motivating you to cross the finish line.  The event supports the Northwest Rett Syndrome Foundation, a local organization for families who have children with Rett Syndrome.
