Launched last year in honor of Lynnwood High School cross country coach Vic Bennet, the Street Strut is a 5 K (three-mile) run/walk on a route that covers some of Edmonds’ most scenic city streets. Participants include hard-core runners, families pushing strollers and even some four-legged friends.
The Edmonds public school with the highest turnout receives the coveted traveling trophy — a golden running shoe — and a cash prize for their school’s physical education department. Prizes are also awarded for the four schools with the most participation.
The event starts at 9 a.m. at Edmonds Civic Track and Field, 6th Avenue North and Bell Street. Early packet pick-up is Oct. 8, from 3-7 p.m. at Running in Motion at 401 Main St. Day of Race packet pick-up starts at 7:45 a.m.
Cost to register by Oct. 4 is $30 adult and $15 youth ages 9-18 (includes T-shirt). After Oct. 4 the adult price goes to $35 and you miss out on the shirt. Ages 9 and under are free. Register with check/cash at Running in Motion or by credit card at www.edmondspsf.org.
