The Snohomish Running Company is excited to invite all who call Snohomish home to the Snohomish River Run. This event will take place on Saturday, October 12th and Sunday, October 13th 2019. Runners will enjoy a beautiful course along the Snohomish River and through Historic Downtown Snohomish. The route will be flat and there are options for USATF Certified Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K runs.
Fall is the perfect time to race and maybe even qualify for the Boston Marathon or other big race. The crisp temperatures make it comfortable and the gorgeous fall colors make the run extra special. After the race, all are invited to stay for a while and have some hot soup, watch the awards ceremony, and enjoy live entertainment. Anyone who finishes the race will receive a medal and all who registered by October 1st were eligible for personalized bibs and race shirts. Those who run the full marathon will also get a finisher jacket. Registration prices after October 1st are $115 for the full marathon, $85 for the half marathon, $65 for the 10K, and $50 for the 5K. The charity partner for this race is Girls on the Run Snohomish County.
The 5K and 10K will take place on Saturday and begin at 8 a.m. The full marathon will start at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday and the half marathon will start at 8 a.m. on Sunday. Participants should watch for parking information after signing up, but there is plenty of street parking in the downtown area.
Even if running is not your favorite pastime, all who call Snohomish home are invited to come out and cheer on the runners. Also consider sponsoring this event or volunteering your time. The Snohomish River Run would not be able to take place without the generous sponsors from the community. Find out more about the race and get registered online.
