The 2015 Burien Brat Trot fundraiser is coming next weekend, starting with a Pub Crawl on Friday, Oct. 2, and ending with the big 5K race on Sunday, Oct. 4, so it’s time to register!
This annual event serves as a fundraiser for the Highline Schools Foundation.
The Burien Brat Trot is a flat and fast 5k and one mile race throughout the streets of Burien, followed by the best street party around…a Bavarian Fest, complete with beer gardens, live bands, pretzels, sausage, beer fraus, bouncy toys, food trucks, cavorting, carousing…and this year–featuring Manuela Horn–the Yodeling Dominatrix!
The funnest fundraiser night around â€“ the annual Pub Crawl â€“ will beÂ Friday night, Oct. 2, and this year withÂ Manuela Horn, our area’s own ‘Yodeling Dominatrix’ and ‘Oktoberfest Queen.’
SCHOOL REGISTRATION DRIVE
Attention Highline Public Schools â€“ win money for your schoolâ€¦itâ€™s easy!

The latest school registration drive standings are here:
Check back for updates! The school registration drive contest closes at 11:59 on Thursday, Oct. 1.
NEW SCHOOL MATCH-UPS. MORE SCHOOLS BECOME WINNERS!
In order to help schools in our district with the resources they need â€” weâ€™ve partnered some schools together so more schools benefit! The schools will be chosen on a rotating basis â€” so if your school isnâ€™t a â€œpartner schoolâ€ this year â€“ donâ€™t worry â€” it will be in the coming years. Weâ€™re excited about the opportunity to help more schools. Thank you for your support!
2015 Partner Schools:
- Marvista Elementary & Highline High School
- St. Francis & and Shorewood Elementary
- Cascade Middle School & Hazel Valley Elementary
HOW IT WORKS
If any of the above schools win 1st, 2nd or 3rd prizeâ€”then their partner school will win the same amount! Will both schoolâ€™s registrations be counted in the drive? Yes, but individually. In other words, if Sylvester gets 10 registrations, they do not count in the St. Francis numbers, and vice-versa. St. Francis has to place 1st, 2nd or 3rd. If they do, both schools win prize awards.
REGISTER ONLINE BEFORE OCT. 1
A Family Registration discount is available for both the 5K and short course races and the Corporate Team Challenge is back this year for groups of 10 or more representing the same organization. Online only: www.burienbrattrot.com
Be a Brat Trot Angel! Sponsor a student in need! Each year during our school competitions we encounter families with children who would love to run but cannot afford the registration fee or do not have adequate shoes to run in. You can be a Brat Trot Angel and sponsor a local child in need so they can run the race without worrying about the fee! Angel donations will be matched with kids in need living in our community. Only $35 to sponsor a child to run or $60 to sponsor 2 children to run. Make a donation atÂ www.burienbrattrot.com
