Course Information:

5K run/walk:


(5K Map)
The Friendship Run 5K has been around for a decade now. We are lucky to have a beautiful trail winding behind our school to run on. We start in the upper lot at McLane Elementary. The trail picks up at the western end of the parking lot and winds around both schools back to Mud Bay Road / Harrison Ave. We cross Mud Bay / Harrison on an overpass and continue north on the trail. The 5K route heads north, until we are even with 11th, then cuts west to Delphi Road NW. We head back south on Delphi and rejoin the trail at 2nd. Crossing the overpass, once again, we follow Mud Bay road to the traffic light at Delphi Road, turn left onto Delphi, then left again into the McLane Elementary Parking lot to finish where we began.

10K run:

The Friendly 10K is a new addition to our menu. Our 10K route follows the 5K course but continues north farther -- All the Way to The Evergreen State College! We are working on permission to run through Red Square at Evergreen, but may need to divert through another portion of campus, As we leave TESC the 10K runners cross Evergreen Parkway near the large traffic circle and follow the trail on the east side of the Parkway south. The trail ends at 2nd and we follow that for a block before turning right onto Overhulse. One more block then right onto Harrison / Mud Bay. We'll go under the overpass, hang a hard right, the climb up over the underpass. From there the 10K route is identical to the 5K.
Directions:
From I-5 take exit 104 for Highway 101.  Follow 101N.  Take the third exit for The Evergreen State College.  Stay to the right for Mud Bay Road when the ramp splits.  Turn left onto Mud Bay Road.  Turn left at the next light onto Delphi Road.  Mclane Elementary is on the left just around the bend.
Other Info:
All proceeds from the Friendship Run go to Olympia's Westside Cooperative Preschool -- A non-profit preschool providing access to quality education in Thurston County since the 1970's.

The Training Groups are coached by Guerilla Running -- A USATF member organization dedicated to helping people reinvent themselves through running.
