Sunday, October 1, 2017: Brat Trot 5K & 1 Mile Family Race

Both courses begin at the corner of 10th Ave SW and SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien and finish right where they started. The 5k takes you on a great jaunt around Lake Burien and past Lake Burien Park. The one-mile course is a fun out-and-back—heading the same direction as the 5k (south on 10th) and then turns around at the mid-point–ending right back where it started! Don’t miss the after-race festivities at the Brat Trot Bavarian Fest! The best street party around! The 5K race begins promptly at 1 p.m., and the 1-mile race begins at 2 p.m. There’s more to Burien Brat Trot than just running – check out the calendar below for dates and times of all the weekend events:
