Tailgating parties usually happen on game day. The 5K TAILGATE gleefully bucks this tradition, however, channeling the energy and revelry normally reserved for football outings to host a 5K color run and, of course, a rousing tailgate party. Once suited up in white t-shirts or their local team's football jerseys, participants jog their way through the verdant Mountain Meadows Farm as volunteers lob colored powder at them along the way.
At the end of the run, prismatic participants can chow down on BBQ goodies and rehydrate with cold beers. All the while, live DJs and musicians regale eardrums with pulse-pounding tunes, and photo booths help preserve memories and spot-on Marty Feldman impersonations.
Run Snoqualmie's staff celebrates Snoqualmie Valley's scenery and local businesses by organizing runs throughout the region each year. These events range from family-minded runs such as the St. Paddy's Day and Turkey Trot 5Ks to more intense jaunts including a 5-mile venture through wooded trails. The icing on the cake, however, is the Fall City half marathon, which challenges runners to race 13.1 miles without stopping for ice cream.
