NW Trail Runs' Summer Series: Seward Sizzler
Situated on a peculiar peninsula, Seward Park provides perhaps one of the greatest contrasts in Seattle: 100+ acres of old growth forest, just minutes from the city center. The event follows a loop that is almost entirely in the forest, so there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy views of the majestic old-growth forest-- with graceful Western Red Cedar and towering Douglas Fir-- that make Seward Park distinctive. The Friends of Seward Park affectionately dub this the "Magnficient Forest."
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!
There will be a 4.2 mile event as well as a 10K.
