SIGNED UP YET? West Seattle 5K = 1 week + 1 day away

If you’ve been procrastinating about signing up for this year’s West Seattle 5K run/walk – time’s running out. Online registration ends on Thursday (May 18th); after that, you’ll have to sign up during packet pickups at West Seattle Runner (2743 California SW; WSB sponsor) next Saturday, or right before the race. It starts from 61st SW/Alki SW at the beach on Sunday, May 21st, at 9:20 am. WSB is a sponsor again this year, as we’ve been every year since the first WS5K in 2009. You can sign up right now by going here, and that also guarantees you a T-shirt with the cool new logo (note that kids 6 and under are free, but no T-shirt), and get ready for a fun morning at the beach, benefiting West Seattle High School!

    Any idea on how much money that is raised actually goes to WSHS?

      $ amount? No, but you could ask the PTSA, which runs this on volunteer power.// Most fundraisers have overhead. In the case of an event like this, costs include city permits, T-shirts, timing equipment … It’s a shame that schools have to have fundraisers at all. We have sponsored this every year from the start, donating $ and advertising, in hopes of helping at least a little bit, and other civic-minded local businesses are sponsors too. – TR

    I wasn’t trying to be a troll, just a curious citizen.

Sorry, comment time is over.
