Additional race information can be found at http://wsjunction.org/blog/west-seattle-5k.

You'll be within the heart of the Junction between SW Edmunds and Genesee along California Ave.

It's the first ever West Seattle .5k

The West Seattle .5k is a beery run around the West Seattle Junction. The .5k is guaranteed to provide almost zero exercise but you'll instead taste some of the best beers from the Pacific Northwest. At each hydration station located in some of your favorite West Seattle bars, enjoy robust tastings from 10 different beers along with snacks and trivia questions.

About the 'run':

Take in neighborhood views around the Junction as you lay down 880 yards (.5k) of pure physical determination.  This route is run on the wide pavement around the Junction, minimal elevation (zero) with two pedestrian crossings on California Ave.  You'll stop at set hydration stations (inside bars) powering up electrolytes (beer) while carbing up (snacks) for the next grueling (not) leg of the run (next bar).  The course is not timed, and walkers, runners and beer-lovers of all abilities are welcome.

Packet pick up in the hallway of The Beer Junction starts at 12 Noon on race day. Start time is 1 PM - the race ends at 5 PM. Race is limited to 400 participants.
Included with run registration is a custom West Seattle .5k mason jar (for your beer), technical t-shirt, .5k finisher sticker and (most important) 10 beer tasting tickets good for 10 4oz pours.

Each participant receives:

10 tasting tickets!  0.5k t-shirt!  West Seattle 0.5k mason jar beer mug!  Snacks!  A 0.5k finisher sticker!  Bragging rights you crushed the 0.5k!
