- $29 for entry to the 5K TAILGATE and after-party (a $60 value)
5K TAILGATE takes place at Green Meadow Farms on Saturday, October 12, 2013—The day before the Seahawks vs. Titans game. The race begins at 10:30 a.m. with waves leaving every 5 minutes. Entry includes a white custom 5K TAILGATE shirt, a race bib, one packet of color (in Seattle Seahawks colors), sponsor souvenirs, and a surprise giveaway. Participants are encouraged to wear white or their favorite team's football jerseys.
Portions of the proceeds from the 5K go toward Dollar Per Month, a volunteer-run organization that raises funds for a variety of charities. American Idol finalist Blake Lewis will also be in attendance at the post-race tailgate party.
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.
