More than 500 runners of all ages tried to “Beat Brackett” during the second annual 5K run Monday, another Edmonds Kind of Fourth of July signature event sponsored by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce.
One special runner in the 5K is designated as George Brackett (named in honor of Edmonds’ founder) with the goal of beating him to the finish line. Last year only 50 runners were able to “Beat Brackett.” This year, Brackett came in 34th, meaning that just 33 runners were faster.
Proceeds from entry fees help to fund the Fourth of July celebration.
The list of the top 50 finishers is below. You can see all finishers here.
