HERE'S WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

Race will begin at 8am sharp on Saturday, October 26th, rain or shine, on College Drive near Grand Ridge Elementary School located at:
1739 NE Park Dr
Issaquah, WA 98029

Please use the Elementary School parking. Eco-friendly porto-potties will be available near the Start.

 

NUMBER & SWAG BAG PICK UP.

Packet pick-up will be Friday October 25th at the Plateau Runner located at:
22830 NE 8th Street, Suite 103
Sammamish WA 98074

You may also pickup up your packet on race day between 6:30-7:30am.
Please arrive as early as possible, as we will be shutting down number pick-up promptly at 7:30am.
We'll do our best to accommodate all t-shirt size requests, but we recommend coming early to get your preferred size.

 

GREAT COMPETITIVE COURSE, YET STROLLER & KID FRIENDLY

This is a competitive race on a great course (have you looked at the awesome route below!), but also a family friendly run/walk open to all ages. Strollers are welcome as part of a single entry (meaning... no entry fee to add a stroller). We will stage participants according to their projected pace. Strollers will be staged last, but this will not affect your overall time - this is a chip timed event, meaning your time starts once you cross the starting line.

 

VOLUNTEERS

We LOVE our volunteers! If you're interested in helping out during number pick-up or on race day, please email highlands5k@tdpartners.biz or signup on the Registration page under the "Volunteer" category. All volunteers will receive an official race shirt and race swag!. Come cheer on your friends!

SWAG & PRIZES
 

The registration fee includes a short-sleeve Run-Dri T, age group prizes and eligibililty for post-race prize drawings.

The T is NOT the crappy cotton T that after a single washing shrinks to a stiff-stale-T-that-you'll-never-ever-wear-again-but-never-ever-throw-away-either-just-because-you-ran-in-that-race-T. These are quality Run-Dri shirts that you'll be proud to run in again and again. We are capping this race at 500 runners, so please register early!
