Here’s more info from the Brat Trot website:
The Burien Brat Trot starts and finishes nestled into one of greatest festivals of the fall — Octoberfest. Beginning at 10:30 am on September 19th the band strikes up and begins to play in Olde Burien. All day event goers can enjoy brats, the beer garden, a german oompah band, booths and of course the Chicken Dance. Local restaurants and shops will be open for business with drink and event specials. Entertaining again this year is the Austrian Yodeler Manuela Horn.
The Burien Brat Trot was developed in 2009 as a way to gather the community together, Octoberfest style, for an afternoon of exercise followed by a celebration. In the spirit of community the Brat Trot also raises critical funds for two local non-profits Safe Kids King County South and WestSide Baby. Both organizations support injury prevention through education and access by providing needy families with essentials such as car seats and cribs.
The 5K race begins on 152nd widely circling Lake Burien and finishes to cheering crowds around the corner of 10th and back onto 152nd. 2010 brings the addition of a 1 mile+ “Seize the Sausage” race perfect for kids and adults alike looking for a shorter venue. Runners can dash out, grab their Bratton and race back to the same finish line as those in the 5K.
We’re one of the sponsors of this great event, and we’re encouraging all our Readers to lace up and hop on board this fundraiser 5k run, which will benefit two local non-profits:
