To participate, download a sponsor form and inherent risk form online at issaquahtrack.com.
Ask everyone from family, friends and neighbors to sponsor you a certain amount of money per lap you run/jog/walk, per foot you jump in the long jump, or a flat donation amount.
Then go to the IHS track at 3 p.m. Feb. 10. Be sure to bring your inherent risk form. Complete as many laps as you can or jump as far as you can in an hour (you can only choose one). During the event, there will also be a timed mile, fun relays and more, all of which go toward your total lap count. Read more
