And of course we can’t forget “Bret the Brat” (aka Ian Field), who came in 205th (every runner who finished before him was entered to win two free tickets to anywhere Alaska Airlines flies). 2010 Brat Trot winner Matt Parker (running shirtless as usual) came in fifth, with a time of 18:11 (his winning time in 2010 was 18:00). This annual grassroots fundraiser for the Highline Schools Foundation packed the streets of Olde Burien under sunny, gorgeous skies on Sunday, Oct. 2. This year’s 5K had at least 750 participants, and the 5K route goes from Olde Burien around Lake Burien: burien-map-brat-trot-2014 Here’s a slow-mo video of the start of the race – can you spot yourself?
