The Traveler 5.5k Run/Walk celebrates the return of spring and the appearance of “The Traveler” apparition on the face of Mt. Washington that is visible from our event location over Earth Day weekend. Participants will enjoy a gentle well marked 3.4 mile terrain with a few rolling hills. We will begin the event activities at 9am with a light cardiovascular warm-up and line up for a race start time of 10am. As you run or walk the course, receive support from the cheers of area residents and 2 hosted water/aid stations to ensure participant hydration and safety. After crossing the finishing line catch a breathtaking view of the Traveler, listen to music, enjoy locally prepared food and beverage, art, massage tables and the awards ceremony with our local choir.
This year we will be contributing 5% of our registration proceeds to the Great Bend Center for Music, lead by Matthew Blegen. Our $12 event shirts designed by local legend Kirk Endicott are available through pre-registration only and going fast. Be sure to catch Jeff Slakey from iFiberOne as the event MC AND Mason County Commissioner Kevin Shutty announcing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners!
Pre packet pick up - Friday, April 20 from 5-7PM at the Alderbrook Golf Course Clubhouse. Listen to Beer Choir, have dinner, get 10% off specialty drinks and grab your race bag early!
