Under the usual clear blue, sunny skies (seems like it’s this way every year!), the 2015 Burien Brat Trot 5K fundraiser race took place on Sunday, Oct. 4, with Paul Yung, 24, of Normandy Park.
This year’s run times seemed much faster, as Yung easily beat the 2014 winning time of 18:27, set last year by Mason Gionet.
Steven Colmus, 42, came in second.

- Paul Yung, 24 (M): 15:53

This year’s race was started by Manuela Horn, everyone’s favorite Oktoberfest Queen (and Yodeling Dominatrix), who counted runners down before yodeling them off southbound on 10th Ave SW. Manuela later entertained a young, lively crowd in front of the Tin Room with her son Max.
We’re proud to have been one of the founding Sponsors, since this great community event began way back in 2009. It serves as a fundraiser for the Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence .
We’ll be adding more photos and videos from the race, so be sure to check back soon.
