This year's course will be similar to previous years, but will be an out and back format. Runners and walkers will enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Washington and  end the event on the main lawn for refreshments and the awards ceremony.

The 5K runners will start just past Seward Park Clay Studio under the Start/Finish arch.  They will head out 1.55 miles to the turn around and head back to the finish line.   Runners should self seed themselves behind the appropriate pace/mile banners starting at 7 min/mile.  5K walkers/strollers/wheelchairs should start toward the back for safety and to give runners plenty of room.  We will have a water station at the 5K turnaround! 

The 3K walkers will start immediately following the 5K.  Wait for the 2nd race horn.  Walkers will head and turn around at the 1.5K mark and return to the finish line always remembering to stay right to let faster runners by.

Seward Park is dog friendly.  Well behaved leashed dogs are certainly welcome at the Run of Hope.  Remember your poop bags! :)
