DSE is taking a break to volunteer and allow runners to participate in the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon, 10K and 5K.
Two races in one! Join us for either a fast, downhill 1 mile race or a scenic 5K loop or both! Check-in for the 1 mile race is at John F. Kennedy Drive & 36th Avenue. Runners will walk/jog uphill to the start of the 1 mile race at Transverse Drive, then race downhill to the finish. Start time for the mile is 8:45am so be sure to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to allow enough time to check in and then make your way to the start about a mile away.
