Lads and lasses, kilt up! May 22nd is the annual Great Kilted Run at Magnuson Park. Although wearing a kilt isn’t required for this 5K event, it is strongly encouraged by event promoters.
Register now online or in person at various sporting stores around the Puget Sound like Super Jock n Jill on East Green Lake Way N. Register before May 21st for $30, or register the day of the race for $40. Don’t have a kilt? Rent one for $5.
If running/walking a 5K isn’t your thing (or if you just want to reward yourself after the race), stop into the Pike Kilt Lifter beer garden, with Pike Kilt Lifter Ruby Ale served up and live music (21 and older only). The beer garden will open up at 9am, with the 5K run/walk beginning at 9:30. A 1K kid’s dash starts at 9:10.
