When is packet pick-up?

We will have a pick-up in Kirkland on Friday, February 11th. Details TBD. We will also have race day pick-up available the morning of the race!

How does the virtual race work?

You will get sent your race kit (shirt, medal, giveaways) a few days before the race.

You will run/walk the race between February 11th & 13th.
By 5pm PST on the 13th you will need to submit your results.

The virtual race is great for those out of state/vicinity or those who feel uncomfortable participating in the in-person event!

What measures are you taking for COVID?

We will send out guidelines for in-person participants. As of now, we will have sanitation stations at the start/finish line & mid-way water station, we will have masks available, and we will have a hand-washing station at Marina Park. We will also require masks when picking up your bib.

We will also be doing a staggered start, racers, runners & then walkers with about 2 minutes between each group.


Thank you to our incredible sponsors! We would not have been able to do this without them!
