Carkeek Park is home to creeks, meadows, wetlands, and a beach along Puget Sound. After the event, you can steal a peek of the magestic Olympic Mountains from this Seattle park treasure.

The Summer Evening Trail Series takes place on 6 Tuesday evenings in some of the most verdant running destinations that are conveniently located within the Seattle and Eastside areas. Distances are short, ranging from 4k to 10 miles at most. Join us for 4 or more Summer Evening Trail Series runs and you'll earn a souvenier (TBA) to mark your achievement!
