The trot begins at 8:00 am starting from Skansie Brothers Park (3211 Harborview Dr, 98335), where you can drop off your cans of food and prepare for the race. Day-of Registration starts at 6:30 AM. You will also be able to pay and pick up t-shirts and bib numbers the day of the race (although we encourage everyone to pay ahead of time, to make for a quick and less-chaotic process).
5k and 10k Routes
The Start of both routes is in front of Skansie Brothers Park. There will be volunteers along the way to guide you. For the latter half of the 10k, follow the light green arrows on the map. For the 5k, you will turn around approximately where the dark green circle is. The end of both routes is back in front of Skansie Brothers Park.
