West Seattle Monster Dash routes

The 5k starts near Shelter #1, just northeast of the south Parking. We will be running mostly on trails, running the upper portion of Lincoln park in two loops. We'll run north along trail #6, passing the wading pool and shelter #5. At the north end of the park, runners will turn west and loop around to head south on trail #2, down and around the bathrooms near south parking lot/start line, then back north again for loop #2. Finish line and starting line are in the same location.
It's less complicated than it sounds, we promise! Plus, there will be course markers and volunteers along the route to help with way finding. ​

We have two kids dash race options for our Little Monsters:

The 250 meter dash is intended for our older Little Monsters (recommended for kids age 10 years and under). A short trail run with our friendly, costumed monster leading the way through a 250 meter loop while the runners chase behind.

The 100 meter dash is intended for our youngest Little Monsters (recommended for kids age 6 and under). The Little's chase after our friendly, costumed monster as it leads the way down a 100 meter straight, paved path.
