Today’s sunshine is a reminder that this year’s big spring/summer events are getting closer all the time – including the eighth annual West Seattle 5K, the season-opening run/walk on Alki, coming up May 22nd. Race director Jeff Mensing sends a reminder that the early-registration-discount deadline is this Thursday night (March 31st), so if you’re thinking about taking part this year, you might as well sign up now. Not only do you get a discount – you’ll also be registered to win a pair of running shoes. Race proceeds support West Seattle High School students and staff; we’re among the race sponsors again this year. You can sign up right here, right now.
