1 WEEK AWAY: First Alki Beach Sunset Run

This year’s next 5K in West Seattle is just one week away (Friday, September 6th), and we’re reminding you because it’s a first – the first-ever Alki Beach Sunset Run. Organizers say more than 1,000 people are registered already. The race course is mapped here; they won’t be closing the full road, organizers say, but do be aware that between the race start at 6:20 pm and the course closure at 7:30 pm, things will be more congested than usual for a late-summer Friday night on Alki. There’s still room to register right now – you can do it online here.

    I sure hope they are running on the sidewalk or street, and not on the bike path.

    If we are running on the bike path, ride in the street.

    Really?  The bike path is part of Seattle Parks, and if they permit it for an event then so be it.  Cycling events close off tunnels and bridges, and I appreciate those opportunities.  I use/ride the Alki trail on a regular basis, and for those couple of hours I can avoid it altogether and ride the street or other roads and let the participants enjoy an event. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
