5 Mile White Elephant Run! $5 pre-registration

This is a fun local race that benefits the Baron Park Striders.

We start at South Sound Running and run the 5 mile Capital Lake Loop, enjoying some of Olympia's Historical downtown as well as our beautiful Capital Building.

Registration:
print off registration form and mail to:
White Elephant Run
5129 Chambers Creek Loop SE
Olympia, WA 98501

Cost:
$5 pre-registered, $10 day of race + wrapped present (worth about $5 – see "awards" below.) If you bring a gift you get to choose a gift after crossing the finish line!
Optional Charcoal gray hooded sweatshirt: add $30
Optional Black technical long-sleeved t-shirt: add $25
Optional black technical t-shirt : add $20 (no logo on sleeve)

Awards: Each person who would like to be eligible for awards should bring a wrapped present with a value of about $5. If you cross the finish line first, you get 1st pick of the presents. After the completion of the race all finishers will open their gifts together at a warm, dry, and festive environment inside South Sound Running. There will be several more valuable gifts interspersed randomly. There will be some manner of special awards for the first three overall male and female finishers and masters winners.
Parking/bathrooms: There is ample parking on Custer Way SW by the dysfunctional brewery or at Tumwater Falls Park. There are no bathrooms at the start of the race, but close by in Tumwater Falls Park are the restrooms of choice. These restrooms are about a quarter mile away from the start, and you really will want to go down to the park anyway because it is beautiful.

    It was a fun run! It started a few minutes behind schedule, but was well organized otherwise. The BR at Tumwater Falls was not an option as advertised, as it was not open, but there were places along the run that were open once the run started. The White Elephant gift exchange was fun! It was great to see so many people out in the community running this morning...many not in the organized run!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
