Are baby strollers or animals allowed?
Yep! Baby strollers are allowed, we’d prefer your furry friend stays at home though. We just ask that you start near the back or the sides at the start line to allow other runners an easy start. Neither dogs or strollers are allowed in the beer garden after the run, please plan accordingly.
Where can I store my belongings during the event?
A participant gear check will be offered during the running portion of the event. Items will need to be picked up before 11:30am. Because of the plastic bag ban in Seattle, bags for gear check will not be offered. Please either bring your own bags or leave personal items in your car.

Yes. Roadways will be closed from 9:30-10:30am with a progressive opening as the course clears. All participants will need to maintain a 20 minute per-mile pace or will be asked to move to the sidewalks and follow normal rules of the road.
