Husky vs. Cougar Rivalry Clash 5K & 10K
The rivalry between UW and Washington State fans is built right into the Husky vs. Cougar Rivalry Clash’s race course. Supporters of the two teams, decked out in their most spirited gear, kick off the chip-timed race at separate starting lines in Marymoor Park, and begin the race by running straight towards each like old armies. Instead of a head-on collision, the two groups funnel into a single mass, sharing a race course as they vie for the fastest times on the 5K or 10K route.
Regardless of the results, everyone buries the hatchet at a tailgate-style afterparty, where entertainment ranges from a tug-of-war to corn-hole. The games and other competitive events, give racers a chance to earn more glory for their schools. There are also awards for the fastest individuals.
