1 MILE • 5K • 10K

The Race Director's Speed Series in beautiful Magnuson Park is a no-frills racing experience that lets participants (no matter their skill level) lace up, bib up, hit the pavement and go home with an official time, a medal and race swag all while supporting local charity Operation Ward 57.

Because social distancing protocols are essential, start waves are limited and staggered and day-of facilities are basic.

This series isn't about the after party. It's about showing up, pushing yourself and going home with your personal best time (or the next time to beat). Register for one or more event in the series.


• Entry fees are non-refundable.

• No transfers or medical comps.

• Be sure to provide a valid email address in order to receive your confirmation email and communication.

• Be sure to provide a valid mailing address to receive your bib and timing chip.

• In case of a cancellation, no refunds will be given. Registration may be applied to a different race.
