Run with Abe 5K!

abeYay!  The First Annual Run with Abe 5k is happening!

February 22, 2009

Gas Works Park, Seattle

Event Info

If you’ve ever wanted to celebrate Abe Lincoln in style, this 5k Run/Walk is the perfect place to do it! This 3.1 mile race is great for both runners, walkers and fans of our 16th President.

Dogs on leash and strollers welcome

The course is dog– and stroller–friendly. We ask that walkers and parties with dogs and strollers start toward the end of the line to reduce crowding and allow runners to achieve their best time.

Team Captains

If you’re a born organizer, start recruiting a team of Abe Racers today. Teams of 10 or more qualify the captain for a great running apparel prize. Please indicate your team name when registering.
