Tunnel to Viaduct 8K

Long time readers will know that I love running where pedestrians usually cannot tread. I mean, I love nature, hiking, forests, wilderness, etc.... but I also love the built environment. Tunnels, bridges, highways, you name it. I love running on it.

Ever since I knew they were building a tunnel under Seattle's waterfront I have hoped that -- before the opening -- they would allow a run through it.


I don't look at Facebook very often, but today I randomly had it open at work, and noticed a local running store adding an event... the Tunnel to Viaduct 8K Packet Pickup.... we were going to have a race!!!

And not *just* a run through the new tunnel ... it's also a final run across my beloved Viaduct!!!

The race is scheduled for February 2, 2019, and registration is available now. Registration for the race is $35, which includes a t-shirt. Medals are available for an additional $12 ... which, yeah, I ordered one. There are free packet pickup options, you can pay to have your packet mailed, or pay to pick it up on race morning.

Come join us! Learn more about the Tunnel to Viaduct 8K.
