If you’re a local business who wants to get in on this great event, it’s not too late, but…
“We are almost entirely sold out,” said Highline Schools Foundation Executive Director Ashley Fosberg. “There is availability at the $250 level though – here’s what they get:
- Name on race t-shirt
- Sponsor poster
- For a nominal fee they can also have a booth at the finish line!”
And don’t forget – premium sponsor Alaska Airlines is holding a drawing for two tickets to anywhere they fly (excluding Hawaii and Mexico), and all you have to do to enter is

Sunday, October 9 will be a great day of German-style fun and exercise presented by the Tin Room Bar & Grill in Olde Burien!
The 5K race starts at 1:00 p.m. in the heart of Olde Burien and widely circles Lake Burien. The “Seize the Sausage” Family Race (about one mile) starts at Lake Burien Park at 1:40 p.m. Both events finish to cheering crowds right in the heart of Olde Burien where revelers can enjoy a day-long Oktoberfest style festival including brats, beer gardens, live entertainment and plenty of activities for kids! Costumes are encouraged!
The Brat Trot is a true community celebration – one that brings out the fun in all of us – and it also raises critical funds for two local non-profits:
Safe Kids King County South and Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence.
Thank you to our main event sponsors:
