Quick, the town of Sno-Who-Mish needs help to chase the conniving Grinch away from Snohomish real estate! No one wants him to ruin their holiday! The 2018 Chase the Grinch Outta Snohomish Fun Run will take place on Sunday, December 2nd, 2018 at 9 a.m. Choose from a 5K or 10K distance. Each will start at “Cheermeister Village,” located at 405 Third Street in Snohomish. The route will take runners along the beautiful Centennial Trail, which is mostly flat. It is an out and back course and runners will be greeted with cheers, hot chocolate, and yummy snacks upon their return. Kids will have a chance to run too. Those 13 and under can participate in a half mile race starting at 8:15 a.m. There will also be entertainment and chances for plenty of pictures when the racing is over. Even if running is not your favorite thing, come out anyway to support those who are participating. It will be a great time.
Register early to take advantage of lower costs. Pre registration is open now until Wednesday, November 28th. The cost for the 5K race is $40 through November 28th and $55 for the 10K. On the day of the event, the cost goes up to $45 for the 5K and $60 for the 10K. The cost for the Kid’s Dash is $10. All proceeds go toward the efforts to revitalize Historic Downtown Snohomish and anyone who is willing to help further can bring a toy in its original packaging to help the cause of the Snohomish Boys and Girls Club.
Everyone participating in the run is encouraged to wear festive clothing to get into the holiday spirit and spread cheer to all who live in Snohomish real estate. Those who take part in the 5K or 10K will receive a swag bag that includes a shirt and official medal. Find more information about the run on the event’s Facebook page and register using this link.
