VIDEO: 2022 Alki Beach Sunset Run

6:13 PM: Just heading out, hundreds of runners are participating in this year’s Alki Beach Sunset Run. They’re headed toward Duwamish Head and back; an outdoor cocktail party with a DJ will follow. No road closures.

7:30 PM: Race presenters Fizz Events told us they had about 500 registrations for this year’s run. They were launched in four waves – (updated) here are all four:

We’re waiting for race results with names and times but these two runners were first in:

(Updated – results are here): Above is #99, 32-year-old Spencer Judge, who finished in 18:12.79; below is #432, 38-year-old Kristi Williams, who finished in 18:43.12:

Participants 21+ got admission to a post-race cocktail party in a cordoned-off area along the west promenade near the start/finish lines.

    The video labeled wave 3 is actually wave 4. You can tell because there isn’t anybody behind them.

      Thanks, I’ll check with P in the morning, I thought he had recorded all four.

    One of the biggest disappointments after moving to Seattle is the lack of road closures for road races. Pushing everyone on a bike path makes these runs/races less desirable to participate in.

      They do close the street for some events, running and otherwise, but the permits are expensive and the road closures require a sizable number of volunteers and/or paid off-duty officers

      As a runner I completely agree. I have friends who live in the Midwest that have local races every weekend with road closures. Bummer for sure!
