Race For A Soldier

Thanks to all of the Seahawks 12K Run attendees!

Sunday, April 19th marked the sixth year of the Seahawks 12K Run at The Landing, and once again we were happy to be there to meet the runners and share our story. There were thousands in attendance to run the 12K, 5K, and kids run, not to mention everyone who was there to cheer them on, and we think we met almost all of them at our booth!

Run for a Cause

Since our first event in 2011, thousands of runners have run for a cause in beautiful Gig Harbor. If you're ready for the long haul (the half marathon) or prefer a slightly shorter haul (the two mile walk/run), this is an amazing event to be a part of.
