You know the old saying 'all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.' Don't be like Jack - make some plans now to have some fun. Here are a few ideas to get you out and about:

The Zombie Run at Magnuson Park

The Zombie Run is an exhilarating, themed 5K racecourse that creates a running narrative where participants can choose either to run as a survivor trying to make their way through the undead hordes, or as a Zombie, trying to defeat the living. The event benefits Active Heroes and a portion of proceeds will also be donated to a local charity.

Run from the Cops 5K Midnight Run

Can YOU out run the cops? The Run from the Cops 5K Midnight Run is a fun and unique opportunity for individuals to fundraise and participate all in support of more than 10,500 Special Olympics Washington athletes. Law enforcement will be staged throughout the race course. Walkers, runners, kids and costumes are welcome! 

5K Foam Fest at Lake Sammamish State Park

It’s time to get filthy clean with the 5k Foam Fest! Built for both the hardcore athlete and the beginner alike, this race is full of fun surprises that will foam your socks off!

Picture colossal mud pits, cargo net climbs, and army crawls – then picture giant inflatable obstacles filled to the brim with white, fluffy foam! Feel like you’re a kid again as you run through the mud and bounce through the Moon Walk. Then prove you’re a grown up as you tackle the Death Drop – a 3 story tall inflatable slide!

Think you’ve got what it takes? Then sign up already and get ready to feel the foam!
