If the thrill of having multiple family members set up camp at your house while you try to finish holiday shopping, wrap gifts, and cook everyone food isn’t enough for you, I think a holiday fun run could be an excellent way to up this season’s ante

The Magnuson Series (“a series for all seasons,” as the group says on its site) is a running and walking event hosted regularly throughout the year for people to get outside, rain or shine, and focus on their health. The looped course goes through Magnuson Park and includes several events: a 5k, 10k, and 15k run/walk, 400-meter kids dash, half marathon run, and duathlon (run bike run). Strollers and leashed dogs can accompany you on this run, and proceeds from the event go to charity, either Earth Runs or another featured charity of the month. 

Organizers note that participants should be mindful of other parkgoers trying to use the park for non-jogging activities. Wear your best and breezy holiday-themed sweater and pound the pavement!
