For the Love of Gracie 5K & Blood Drive

A Race for Life - Everett, WA 2021 Date TBA

2020 Registration is OPEN

Course Information

This family-friendly 5K will start and end at Thornton Sullivan Park (aka Silver Lake Park), 11405 Silver Lake Rd, Everett.  We'll line up based on expected pace with our speedy runners up front and our walkers and strollers towards the back.  The race will start promptly at 9:00 am.

The route starts with a gentle uphill to get you out of the park.  You'll have a fun downhill with a bit of climb back up within the first .5 mile then the route evens out and is generally flat as you travel around Silver Lake.  After looping through Hauge Homestead Park you'll retrace your steps back to Silver Lake Park with a fast downhill to the Finish Line.

You'll be running on a combination of sidewalks, coned running lanes and both gravel and paved paths.  There will be a water station and restrooms at 1.5 miles.

Because of course limitations only SINGLE strollers are allowed on the route.  Strollers should be able to handle a variety of surfaces including gravel.

Pets are NOT allowed in Silver Lake Park.  Due to insurance restrictions pets are also not allowed on the route.  

Sunshine Productions encourages you to limit your running music to one earbud at a reasonable volume to make it easier for you to remain aware of your surroundings during the race.  Your safety is our number one priority and this is not a closed course
