As we first reported, Magnolia will have its own fun run and walk this fall. The city of Seattle has now approved the event and the inaugural Run the Bluff is set for October 9. You can get more information and register here.
There will be a 12K and a 5K run/walk course. The event will also have a free kids dash along with bouncy houses at the finish line. Runners will follow a course through Magnolia, including a stretch along the bluff. Early registration is $40 for the 12k and $30 for the 5k. Day of entry is $45/$35. The post-race celebration area will include a beer garden and an exhibitor and sponsor booth area. .
Run the Bluff will benefit Successful Schools in Action, a non-profit organization providing after-school programs for schools in the Magnolia and Queen Anne communities.
The race will start and finish at the Magnolia Playfield in Magnolia at 2518 34th Avenue West. The full race course map has not yet been posted.
