Seward Solstice Trail Run
Sat December 18
Take your pick of 4.2-mile and 10k run distances among the towering old-growth trees on this forested peninsula. We encourage costumes at this run and award prizes to the best holiday-themed outfits!
Northwest Trail Runs events feature clearly-marked courses, well-stocked aid stations, friendly staff, and fun raffle and winner prizes given at the finish.
Surrounded by Lake Washington, Seward Park provides perhaps one of the greatest contrasts in Seattle: 100+ acres of old growth forest, just minutes from the city center. The run route follows a loop that is almost entirely in the forest, so there is ample opportunity to enjoy what the Friends of Seward Park fondly call The Magnificent Forest with graceful Western Red Cedar and towering Douglas Fir, along with a lush tapestry of other native plants. You may even hear a Pileated Woodpecker pecking out a nest or rooting for a meal in an old tree trunk.
