Also ahead: West Seattle 5K and ‘Summer Streets’ May 19th

Another big, fun event is getting close: Be like Jennifer and Zorro in our 2012 photo above, and get your feet/paws into the West Seattle 5K! The fifth annual fundraising run presented by the West Seattle High School PTSA is just two weeks from tomorrow, with more than a thousand runners expected to fill Alki Avenue again this year, starting just after 9 am on Sunday, May 19th. WSB is proud to be a West Seattle 5K co-sponsor, as we’ve been every year since the first one in 2009 – hope to see you out in the street again this year! You have until May 16th to sign up online, if you haven’t registered already – do it right now by going here (kids 6 and under, by the way, are free).

P.S. – a reminder that once the West Seattle 5K’s wrapped up by 11 am, it’s the sixth annual “Alki car-free day,” aka Seattle Summer Streets, with more activities than ever promised this year – including the Alki Beach Creeps’ Costumed Bike Parade at 1 pm.

  4. Yup, there are people with their dog(s), people with their kid(s), some running (it’s only a 5K, not a marathon), some walking … Haven’t seen anyone with a cat yet. Maybe someday.
