Get the best run for your money!

The BBY5k is a dog and stroller friendly 5k run/walk event benefiting King County Parks.  Join 1500 of your closest friends for a stroll around King County’s Marymoor Park.  Stick around after the run for another epic Kid’s Dash, refreshing drinks, tasty foods and awards.  The course is flat, chip-timed and perfect for a PR.  Back by popular demand… our $100 course record bonus is up for grabs!

So YOU get a t-shirt, refreshments, chip-timing, entertainment, possibly awards AND the SATISFACTION of supporting King County Parks.  That’s bang for your buck, my friend.  Oh yeah… register before 2/20 and get a $5 Harborstone zipper hoody ($30 total).

Kid’s Dash

Probably the most entertaining race you’ll ever see – it’s the BBY Kid’s Dash!  Chase Bert the Salmon for about 200 meters and cross the finish line for a fun prize.  As always, the Kid’s Dash is 100% FREE w/ a paid parent entry.  Please indicate Kid’s Dash participant where appropriate in registration form.

The Shirt

All who register by May 30th will get a super comfy, high quality tri-blend t-shirt.  This year the shirts are baby blue and don our new logo.  Check out the mock-ups below – these are still subject to change unless otherwise indicated.  These are the same shirts as last year and are on the tight side.  Please review the size chart before selecting your size on the registration form.

Shirts will be picked up with race packets.  See details below about packet pick-up.

$5 Harborstone Hoody (Now with zipper!)

How do you make a hoody even better?  Add a zipper!  Get your $5 Harborstone Hoody by registering before Feb 20th.  So for $30 you get a shirt, a hoody, a timing chip, a race, food and drinks and the company of 1500 people.  Sweet deal, eh?

Hoodies will be available for pick-up at the Super Jock Redmond location in early March.  Hoods not picked up by end of March will be distributed with race packets at the race.

This year’s hoody is a nice kelly green – check it out below.  Also check out Harborstone Credit Union… and maybe thank them for helping you score a $5 hoody.

Volunteer

Karma is a five letter word. So if you hate running or just want to compensate for felonies in a previous life, volunteering is the way to go.

Refund Policy

Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we have a uniform policy of no refunds, transfers or deferrals to a future year. We know that plans change and unexpected things come up, but we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of an arbitrary line of who merits a refund and who doesn’t. Thank you for your understanding.

Consider it a donation to King County Parks if you can’t attend (and thank you!).
