This is a charity run/walk held in memory of Christopher Mang who passed away in May of 2018. Chris was a longtime participant in the Skagit County Special Olympics Program and more recently volunteered at a number of Northwest Endurance Events running events. Registration proceeds from this race will be donated to Special Olympics Washington. Local Special Olympics athletes will be participating and anyone who is interested in joining them is encouraged to do so. Please check in at the registration desk if you are interested. For more information about the Special Olympics unified sports mission of inclusion click here.
The 1mile and 5K courses follow trails bordering softball, baseball, and soccer fields at the Skagit Playfields County Park, located on the northeast side of Skagit Valley College. Trails at the Playfields vary between crushed gravel, compressed wood chips, and pavement. Music and food (hot dogs, a variety of chips and snacks) will be provided at the finish area.
We encourage people who want to run/walk to register online, but if you’re unable to, please note we will have day of race registration available.
Parking

There is limited parking close to the start area here. If you plan on arriving closer to the start, or just don’t want to deal with trying to find a spot, there is plenty of parking available at the college.

Course Information

The course starts on the westside of the softball fields near the large shelter. The 5K course has two loops with a moderate uphill and downhill section and a 0.4mi out and back on each loop. The remainder of the course varies from flat to gentle uphill or downhill grades. The 1 mile course follows the first part of the 5K course, including the out and back, circling the south playfields before returning to the start finish. There is only one road where traffic enters the park. There will be a crossing guard at this location, however, all participants should be aware of traffic entering the park as they approach this crossing.
All turns and turnaround points will be marked and or signed. There will be an aid station at approximately the half way point of each loop. This is not a USATF certified course, but it is at least the advertised distance.
Aid Stations

There will be a single aid station on the course that will have Water and Sports drink available for runners.
