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.
After the Street Strut, stop by Coldwell Banker Bain at 108 5th Ave. S. and participate in Edmonds’ first ever Halloween Costume Swap, sponsored by Green Halloween Edmonds, from 11 a.m-2 p.m.
Costumes in good condition can be dropped off at Coldwell Banker Bain now through the day of the swap. Those donating costumes will receive a token if they want to return to pick up a new costume the day of the event. Any leftover costumes will be donated to charity.
