PHOTOS: Residents Run, Walk During Sunday Morning’s First Brat Trot ‘Hash’
The first Brat Trot ‘Hash’ took place Sunday morning (Aug. 14th), when participants met up at the corner of 10th and SW 152nd streets in front of the Masonic Hall for a leisurely romp around the Brat Trot course that wound up back at the Tin Room for food and drink specials.
“Danny (House, Tin Room Owner) had some great specials for the participants,” said Chuck Tuman, who sent us the pics below. “Pints of Alaskan Amber were $2.50 and Bloody Mary’s for $3.25. Tin Dog and fries for $7.50, Tin Room Pancakes with fruit and maple syrup for $6.00 (really a dynamite pancake according to the young woman eating it…) and my favorite, Huevos Rancheros with potatoes on the side!”
The Tin Room Bar (a BTB advertiser and Brat Trot sponsor) is sponsoring these fun events leading up to the Brat Trot, which will be held Sunday, Oct. 9th in Olde Burien. According to the event website:
The Burien Brat Trot has quickly become one of South King County’s most fun and festive fall events! Beginning at 10:30 am on Sunday, October 9th the band will strike 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! Many of Olde Burien’s quaint restaurants and shops will be open for business with drink and event specials. 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 Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence. Safe Kids supports injury prevention through education and access by providing needy families with essentials such as car seats and cribs. The Highline Schools Foundation provides community resources to help all Highline Public Schools succeed by supporting classroom innovation, the arts, athletics, college scholarships and many more district programs and needs.
The 5K race begins on 10th widely circling Lake Burien and finishes to cheering crowds on 152nd. In addition there will be a short-course race perfect for kids and adults alike looking for a more leisurely pace and distance.
The next hashes will kick off at 11am on three more Sundays leading up to the Brat Trot — August 28, September 11 and September 25.
