Course Description

This 5K route is an "out and back", starting next to Redmond City Hall in their Municipal Campus Park and immediately joining the Sammamish River Trail heading south. The scenic route takes runners and walkers down the trail towards Marymoor Park, past the river, and lovely gardens, under bridges and over bridges, before turning around just inside Marymoor Park to finish 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
