Register! Hash! Scavenge for Sausages! Get Ready for the Burien Brat Trot Oct. 7!
The third annual Burien Brat Trot fundraiser is coming Sunday, Oct. 7 (we’re proud to be the Media Sponsor for the 3rd consecutive year), registration is now open, and the first “Hash” will be this Sunday, Aug. 12.
You can register for the run online now at www.burienbrattrot.com.
This homegrown fundraiser 5K and 1.2-mile family race is one of our community’s favorite events. All day long on Oct. 7, 2012 you can participate or come enjoy the fun – the race is followed by a “Bavarianfest” street party complete with beer gardens, great food, music, a kidstage, and zany fun.
This race benefits two important local organizations:
- The Highline Schools Foundation, which gathers community resources to support the 18,000 public school students in the Highline School District
- Safe Kids King County South, which supports injury prevention through education and access.
The 5K race begins at the corner of 10th Ave SW and SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien, circles Lake Burien and finishes to cheering crowds in front of The Tin Room! View the official course map here. The one mile race starts at Lake Burien Park and also finishes in the heart of the festivities.
In addition to the big run on Oct. 7, there are other events this year worth participating in:
