Updated information: You know that the fantastic West Seattle Brewing Company is serving up pints after the race, and now we hear that Chopstix and Curb Jumper Street Eats will be on hand, too, for that necessary post-race sustenance.
Still have yet to register for Seattle mag's Earth Day Run along Alki Beach? Key in Gilt City Seattle to purchase a registration for $27 (that's a whopping 40 percent off the regular reg. price).
Runners and walkers: Our Earth Day Run is back for 2014, and this time it will wind along the Alki Beach waterfront in West Seattle. (This West Seattleite is thrilled!) We debuted our dog-friendly 5K event last year to help raise awareness for environmentally sustainable practices, local businesses and products. (You may remember our fearless style editor Ali Brownrigg's month-long quest to train for the big day.) And this year, a portion of the proceeds from the race will benefit EarthCorps, a Seattle-based nonprofit organization that aims to build a community of leaders through local environmental service.
As for post-race libations, the West Seattle Brewing Company will be pouring pints in the beer garden (every single beer sold benefits the Seattle environmental nonprofit EarthCorps), and anyone--spectators included--are welcome to join in the imbibing. But bring cash; your plastic is no good here. If you're hungry, bites from Ocean Naturals and Sahale Snacks will be on hand. Registration includes your race t-shirt!
The deets: Our Earth Day Run 2014 takes place on April 19, at 9:30 a.m. (check in opens at 8 a.m.), and will start and finish at Alki Beach Park. After you've raced your heart out, expect plenty of post-race festivities and fun swag. As for the results, each runner gets a timing chip on his or her bib and your results will be released within 24 hours of the event. Register Here: http://seattlemag.com/article/earth-day-run-2014
See you at the finish line!
