No Float Dodger 5K this year – but you can still run pre-parade

After six years of serving as an opening act for the West Seattle Grand Parade, the Float Dodger 5K run/walk on the parade route is taking a break this year. After a tip from Marion, we went over to West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor), organizers of the Float Dodger 5K. Tim McConnell told us a variety of factors led to the decision to skip this year – including a late start to fundraising – which is a vital component, given permit fees and other costs – plus other business/family projects. But as you’ll see on the Float Dodger website, they’re organizing a casual run pre-parade: “Please join West Seattle Runner for a casual group run the morning of the parade on July ​21 at 9:30 am to run the parade route and watch the parade from the store afterward.” And they’re hoping to bring back the Float Dodger 5K in 2019.
