10:44 AM: Add another 5K to the lineup of run/walk events on Alki this year. The Earth Day Run is set for Saturday, April 19th. Seattle Magazine launched this annual run last year at Myrtle Edwards Park and is moving it across the bay to Alki this time around. Start is listed as 9:30 am, round trip from Alki Bathhouse, with other events including an awards ceremony and beer garden. Part of the proceeds benefit EarthCorps. More info on the Earth Day Run is here. (Could be a good warmup for the West Seattle 5K four weeks later, on Alki May 18th!)
2:02 PM: This run will close Alki SW until 11:30 that morning, except for residential access, we have confirmed with Seattle Magazine’s Katie Williams – some 5K events just travel on the path/trail, so we wanted to verify this for anyone wondering.
