The Issaquah Rotary Run with the Fishes is Oct. 6.
This year’s run is the 37th annual Rotary run. Runners can participate in the Run with the Fishes 5K Run/Walk or the Kids Dash.
For those who want to make a race of it, timing chips will be provided, or participants can just walk or stroll. Event proceeds benefit local charities supported by the Issaquah Rotary Foundation.
The 5K Run/Walk begins at 9 a.m. and the Kids Dash at 10:30 a.m. Register for the events at http://issaquahrun.com or mail at Issaquah Rotary Foundation, P.O. Box 553, Issaquah, WA 98027.
On race day, participants should meet near Sports Authority, 1185 N.W. Gilman Blvd. People will be able to register on race day but they will not be guaranteed an event-designed running shirt.
A general registration ticket is $35 for preregistration and $40 at the event. Register online at http://issaquahrun.com.
The race course is flat, miles are clearly marked and water stations are available along the course. Unofficial results will be posted near the finish line. Official results will be posted on the event and Rotary websites as well as Facebook for those who want to share with friends.
Donors of the event include Peak Sports & Spine, Sports Authority, Rowley Properties, Integrity Automotive, YMCA and UEMA.
There will be a post-event celebration for all attendees.
