Beat The Blerch is a series of 5K, 10K, half, and full marathons created by The Oatmeal and inspired by this comic about running.

Our Carnation, Washington race will take place in a quaint little town located about 35 minutes outside of Seattle. 

It begins at King County’s Tolt MacDonald Park, and it’s a beautiful flat, out-and-back course that winds its way through evergreen, mossy forests along the Snoqualmie valley trail. Near the starting line of the race are strawberry farms and pumpkin patches, which offer guided tours in case you’re still up for a bit of walking after the race.
