Earth Day 5K is a celebration of our precious planet Earth, Environmental Stewardship, and Community.
We'll have a DJ, refreshments, prizes, a free 400 m Fun Run (after the 5K) for our youngest runners, and more!
This 5K is right before the Earth Day 2018 (which is on Sunday Apr 22), and a week before The Procession of the Species, Olympia's amazing celebration of nature and community. If you are participating in The Procession and have a costume, give it a spin at the 5K as you run or walk our route. Prizes will be given for various costume categories!
Meet at Marshall Middle School. The 5K Dash starts at 10:00 a.m., rain or shine. The route starts near the Marshall track, takes one lap around the track, goes through the Goldcrest Neighborhood's mild hills and curves, and finishes with a lap back at the track.
Same day registration and check-in opens at 8:30 until 9:40 a.m.
You can register early online at Active.com (search on "Earth Day 5K" in Olympia, WA), or pick up (fill out and return) the forms at the school office. First 100 registrants fet a tshirt! After Apr. 7, it's $30.
This is our biggest fundraiser of the school year.
The Earth Day 5K benefits the students of Marshall Middle School, and is hosted by the Marshall Community Council, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
