From the VES Fields (Harbor School), racers will head North on Vashon Highway turning East on 156th St. to a Right turn onto 91st Ave. From here, a Left turn takes runners onto Dilworth Rd were a turnaround awaits and participants will retrace back to the finish line.
Vashon Island offers runners and walkers exquisite scenery. The race course follows paved country roads with some challenging hills along what our locals call "The Dilworth Loop".
Some people run hoping to beat their personal best time or their best friend. Others walk and talk , and stop for tea along the way. The 5K run is sanctioned by USATF. Click HERE to view last year's results. (Please note that the 5K walk is not an official race and prizes are not awarded).
The Bill Burby Inspirational Fun Run is held during the annual Strawberry Festival. After the race, participants can witness the quirky parade, swing to live music, eat festival food or check out the arts and crafts for sale. Bring the whole family and make a day of it!
