Ballard Rotary introduces the ‘Ballard 5k run/walk’

Posted by Geeky Swedes on April 29th, 2011

Get ready for a new summer event that Ballard Rotary is hoping will become an annual tradition.

The “Ballard 5k run/walk” will take place on June 12th at 8:30 a.m. – and costumes are encouraged. Kids 12 and under with a participating adult will get free Viking hat.

The route starts at the Golden Gardens park overflow parking lot. Walkers (strollers and dogs allowed) will circle back around to the starting point, but runners will end up at the top of the hill. The Ballard Boys & Girls Club will shuttle running participants to their cars who don’t want to walk down the stairs.

Money raised from the event will go to support the Ballard Boys & Girls Club, the Ballard NW Senior Center and other Ballard Rotary service projects. For more information and to register click here.

    I looked at their website, but couldn’t find the route details (exactly which streets will be impacted on Sunset Hill). Hopefully, they’ll add that information.

    Sounds like an uphill course!

    Reverse of the Turkey Trot it sounds like.
