The 2015 Rescue Run is fast approaching. El Niño has given us great weather this summer and promises to continue the streak, unfortunately that great weather resulted in a lot of fires in Washington and a taxing of emergency services. Join ARC in raising some money for these folks to help them help others.
You can register online right this very minute, just follow this link. This year we’re only accepting early registrations online via Active.com so we can keep a better track of your event and shirt choices as well as capture your contact info so we can contact you with questions or to update you about the event (don’t worry, I do my best to limit the contacts because I really dislike getting junk email too and don’t want to be guilty of doing something I hate).
The venue for the 2015 Rescue Run is near the Arlington Airport Office located at 18204 59th Avenue NE; Arlington, WA 98223. That’s just across the street from Skookum Brewery or right by Ellie’s Restaurant at the Airport (which is a fantastic place to eat). The registration process (day of race and picking up your pre-registered packets, getting your event shirt and all) will be close to our START/FINISH gate.
Day of Race registration opens at 7:45a, the race starts at 9:00 for the 10k and 9:10 for the 5k. We will start handing out awards about 10:00a (as soon as enough 5k folks have returned so we can start the process). As soon as those awards are done, we should be able to go right into giving out the 10k awards. There will be a trophy for the 1st place finisher in each gender/event (that’s 4 trophies total – 2 events time 2 genders). We also have placement ribbons for the top 3 finishers of each age group (14 and under, 15-19, 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70+). There will be plenty of water and post-race snacks to re-energize your body.
Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue Operations Support Unit puts on a great feast – after all, that’s a big part of what they do to help in the Search and Rescue process.
There’s plenty of parking around the Arlington Airport Office and restroom facilities at the Arlington Airport Office as well. A word to the wise, there is limited restroom facilities at the Arlington Airport Office so don’t wait until the last minute or you’ll be standing in the restroom line instead of the starting line.
