Description

We're BACK with Loop The ‘Lupe, Seattle's best 5K obstacle course fun run! This event will take place at Walt Hundley Playfield in West Seattle on Sunday, August 29th! Here's what's in store for 2021:

  • IN-PERSON RACING: Our state is open again, and "the Loop" is back, too! We're once again offering four events--the wall-climbing, mud-crawling, "ninja warrior" Obstacle Course 5k, the 5K run/walk, the Senior Saunter walk (100% flat, no obstacles), and the Youth Dash (a 1K loop with obstacles & adult supervision). In line with state regulations, masks are not required for this outdoor sports event.
  • YOU GET TO SUPPORT A GOOD CAUSE: This event is one of the major fundraisers for Our Lady of Guadalupe Church each year. As you might imagine, the need for OLG's social outreach work--meals for shut-ins, homeless services, and help with migrant communities--is greater now than ever. So, join us for the Loop, and have some fun while raising much needed funds for those in need!
  • VIRTUAL RACING: Not feeling up to a trip to the park? No problem! Register to get a race t-shirt and record a video of yourself on your own crazy home obstacle course, then post it to our on our Facebook page! Prizes for the top entrants!
  • ALL PARTICIPANTS: The Loop's live music, food, and beer garden are back, too, this summer, with a new layout for post-race relaxation at the park! Heads up: AFTER AUGUST 14, T-SHIRT SIZES MAY BE LIMITED, SO GET A TEAM TOGETHER AND SIGN UP SOON!
