Gear Check

We will have gear transfer available at the start. In an effort to reduce waste, we will not be providing drop bags, so PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN BAG. We will have identification tags for you to use. DO NOT put valuables in your drop bag. Drop bags will be available to pick up at the race finish at Lake Sammamish State Park.


There is plenty of parking at Redmond Town Center. Please arrive early enough to find a spot, pick up your race packet, and get ready to start.

Even so, if everyone arrives at the same time in the same place, traffic can be stressful. Please look at the following parking suggestions.

Parking suggestions

We suggest that cars with license plates ending in an even number enter from the west and use the north parking garage off NE 76th Street.

Cars with license plates ending in an odd number enter from the east and use the southeast garage off NE 73rd Way.

Shuttle Buses

The race starts at Redmond Town Center in Redmond and finishes at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah. Shuttle buses will be available after the race to return you to Redmond Town Center. First shuttle bus will be available at 8:30am. Buses will depart Lake Sammamish SP as needed and will run until everyone is back at Redmond Town Center.

Finish Line Parking

Your friends and family are welcome to park at Lake Sammamish State Park to watch you cross the finish line. However, because it’s a state park, every vehicle is required to display a Discover Pass (good at all state parks and other state lands). You can purchase a pass in advance online or at the park’s automated pay station. Both one-day and annual passes are available.

Pre-race Packet Pickup

We’ll have one pre-race packet pickup opportunity.

Saturday, September 26

12pm-7pm – Bellevue Road Runner Sports (12200 Northup Way, Bellevue WA 98005)

Parking at Road Runner Bellevue

Parking at Road Runner Bellevue is very limited. Please carpool or use public transportation if possible. There is also some additional parking just east of Road Runner (see map). Please do NOT park in any other lots.











Required Documents

You will need photo ID in order to pick up your packet (both at pre-race pickup and on race day).

You can have someone else pick up your packet for you if they have:

  • a copy of your photo id: either hard copy or on phone
  • written authorization from you


In an effort to help our local communities reduce waste, we’ve decided to forego plastic bags and instead provide “virtual” swag. You’ll still be getting great discounts on other local races, as well as discounts from our great sponsors. But instead of handing out printed flyers in plastic bags, we’ll be sending a special email to all registrants with links to discounts on race gear and race entries. The best part: no plastic bags to throw away!

Registration Confirmation

If you’d like to verify that you’re registered, please check the confirmation list.

Race Day Pickup

You may also pick up your packet on race day. If you choose this option, please allow plenty of time for transportation and parking. We strongly encourage you to pick up your packet ahead of time if you can.  back to top

Event Swag

All registered racers receive a long-sleeved half-zip shirt (2020 design shown). 







Note: the charts provided are only guidelines – every individual has different proportions and these standardized charts will not guarantee a perfect fit. If you are on the borderline between two sizes, base your selection on whether or not you prefer a looser fit (size up) or closer fit, and the product style.











Finisher medal

All finishers will receive a medal.


Because of the current (March 11) restrictions on crowd sizes, we will not have a formal awards ceremony. Awards will be mailed. If the restrictions change, this will also change.

Overall awards

Overall race top finishers are recognized 3 deep in both female and male divisions.

Top Finisher Awards

Overall race top finishers are recognized 3 deep in both female and male divisions.

Age Group Awards

Age group awards will be given 3 deep (1st, 2nd, 3rd) in each age division. The age divisions are 0-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60-69 and 70+ for each gender.  back to top
