This race also serves as the Pacific Northwest Track & Field Half Marathon Championships, bringing in elite athletes from all over the country’s western most six states!

As part of the opening week of football season festivities, the NFL has just announced the Seattle Seahawks 5K Run/Walk that will take place on Labor Day – Monday, September 1st at CenturyLink Field. The Overlake Medical Center Labor Day Half is proud to support the Seattle Seahawks and rather than make you choose between these two events, we’ve decided to move our event date to Sunday, August 31st! If you have already registered for the Overlake Medical Center Labor Day Half, and can no longer participate in the event because of the date change, please e-mail info@orswellevents.com.
