Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN & WHERE CAN I PICK UP MY RACE PACKET?

On RACE DAY packets will be available at the Start/Finish area at Thornton Sullivan Park (aka Silver Lake Park), 1300 112 St SE, Everett from 8:00-8:45.  There is no early packet pickup for this event. 

 

CAN I REGISTER ON RACE DAY?

In person registrations will be accepted for runners & walkers with the understanding that Race Medals are not guaranteed for "day of" registrations.  You can still register to run or walk and receive all the benefits of the event but will not be guaranteed a finishers medal. You may wait for the last runner to finish to see if additional medals are available. If additional medals are available you must pick yours up in person. Medals will not be mailed.  Adults $35, Youth $25 - cash preferred, credit/debit accepted with 3% surcharge.

 

WILL GEAR CHECK BE AVAILABLE?

Yes - Gear can be checked at the Start/Finish area up until the start of the race.  We discourage checking valuables and instead recommend leaving them at home or hidden in your locked car.

 

ARE DOGS OR STROLLERS ALLOWED ON THIS COURSE?

Pets are not allowed on this event due to park rules and insurance restrictions.  ONLY SINGLE STROLLERS are allowed due to course restrictions.   Stroller runners will start at the back of the runners to prevent potential incidents and to reduce crowding.   Strollers should be able to handle a variety of surfaces including gravel and forest paths.  Anyone lining up at the Start/Finish with a double stroller will be asked to remain at the Start/Finish area to cheer the runners rather than participating in the event. 

 

ARE HEADPHONES ALLOWED?

The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this event.  If you must use them  we STRONGLY suggest using only one earbud and keeping the volume low enough to be able to hear Course Marshall and Safety Monitor instructions while running.  This is not a closed course.

 

WILL THERE BE BATHROOMS ON THE COURSE?

Restrooms will be available at the Start/Finish and at the 1.5 mile point on the course.  

IS THERE A COURSE TIME LIMIT?

Since our route is not closed to traffic we do not have a course time limit  We do however need to be cleared out of Silver Lake Park by11:00 am and we really, really want to be there to greet you when you cross the finish line!  Please plan on meeting or exceeding a 22 to 23 minute per mile pace to make sure you get all the recognition you deserve when you are done.  We will have crew members walking the course as "sweep" so you will never be left to walk alone out there, regardless of your pace.
