Run scared 🏃‍♀️👻

📸: West Seattle Monster Dash

📅 Saturday, October 28th
⏰ 9:30 am – 5k Run | 10:30 am – Kids
📍 West Seattle’s Lincoln Park: 8611 Fauntleroy Way SW, Seattle
🎟 $40 – 5k Run | $15 – Kids 

If you plan to gorge on Goodbars or stuff yourself silly with Snickers, consider putting on your costume and heading to Lincoln Park for the 12th Annual West Seattle Monster Dash. (Every diet has an exception for fun-sized Halloween candy, right? That’s the rule?)

This Halloween, conquer a timed 5K run or walk through trails with a view of Puget Sound. (Running + Pretty Scenery = A Great Idea.) This annual West Seattle event includes a kids’ dash for all the little gremlins in your life, complete with a kids’ zone with games and prizes. Registration for both races comes with a t-shirt. 

Last year’s race included everyone from Where’s Waldo—now we know where he is—to witches. Plus, proceeds support South Seattle College Cooperative Preschools equity initiatives and scholarships. Isn’t that sweet? (Tip: The route is available for practice runs for those trying to beat their best time. Jogging strollers are allowed, but leave the pup at home!)
