West Seattle .5k – Saturday, June 15th – In the Junction


The event is SOLD OUT!


It’s the first ever West Seattle .5k. The West Seattle .5k is a beer run in the West Seattle Junction designed to push you to the limits of physical human endurance. (jk)

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, you’ll enjoy robust tastings from 10 different beers along with snacks, beer trivia questions and prizes. This is the race for physical underachievers who have wanted to do a run, but really didn’t want to.

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 220 participants.

You can register as an individual or as a team.

The .5k too much for you? No worries – you can donate straight from your couch! Join the Beer Drinkers Couch Fundraiser here, you’ll help raise funds for the Junction without actually moving. It’s a win-win! All donations support free community programming and events in the Junction.
