Each year the town of Edmunds, WA celebrates the Fourth of July weekend with a 5k run to "Beat Brackett". Who is Brackett? George Brackett was the founding father of Edmonds, WA. Born in eastern Canada, Brackett was a logger who came down to Puget Sound in search of good lumber in the 1870s.
Enough of the history lesson, though - this 5k run/walk is good, clean fun for the whole family.
Free for kids under 12!
