Race Information

Beat The Blerch is a 10k/half/full marathon founded by The Oatmeal, which takes place in the beautiful mossy forests of Carnation, Washington. The race was inspired by this comic:http://theoatmeal.com/comics/running

There will be cake at every aid station, infinite supplies of Nutella, and Blerches in costume who may or may not be chasing you throughout the race. This marathon is your chance to figuratively (and literally), Beat The Blerch.

Choose which day you want to race! Each distance is offered on both days - Saturday and Sunday. Make sure to register soon because this is a popular event. With free cake and couches along the course, who can resist?
