Course Description

This 5K & 10K routes are an "out and back", starting next to Redmond City Hall in their Municipal Campus Park and immediately joining the Sammamish River Trail heading north. The scenic route takes runners and walkers on the trail, past the river, and lovely gardens, under bridges and over bridges, before turning around just before Sixty Acres Park to finish back at Municipal Campus Park. This is a flat fast route that will lend itself to fast paces and quick times!  Click here for a course map: Course Map
