Course Description & Map

The Alki Beach Sunset Run 5K course is a scenic out & back along Alki Ave taking in the breathtaking scenery as you run east towards the Seattle skyline before turning around near Luna Park. On your return run west towards Alki Beach, your focus will be on Elliott Bay, the Seattle Ferry Boats, Cascade Mountains and gorgeous Seattle sunset. This course is flat and fast; you’ll be at the finish line before you realize you’ve made the turnaround! Course map below

Parking & Travel

Parking for the event will be located along the side streets running perpendicular to Alki Ave. Please follow and obey all no-parking signs as all of Alki Ave will be no-parked to allow participants the ability to run along the full width of the road. Arrive early, the later you arrive the further away you’ll need to park.


Is this Race 21+ Only? – Nope! All ages are welcome to participate in either of the event categories, but the Tito’s Vodka Garden and alcoholic drinks will be for 21+ only. There will be non-alcoholic drinks available as well for everyone. Remember your ID, we card everyone.

Is there a time limit? Yes – Due to City of Seattle rules and restrictions all roadways will need to be reopened in 1 hour from the start of the race. If participants are still on course after the 1-hour time limit we will ask you to move to the Alki Beach bike path to allow vehicles access. This means participants will need to be back to the finish line at 7:30pm.

Can someone other than me pick up my race packet? Yes – but with no prior pick up options, we hope you come have fun with us!

Where do I leave my “stuff” while participating? We will have a gear check tent located near the start line. Race crew & volunteers are not responsible for lost/stolen merchandise. Please leave valuables in your car.

Event Shirts, What are they? All participants will receive a gender specific tank top.

Are Strollers/Baby Joggers allowed? Yes – We just ask you to start to the side or back of the pack to not interfere with other participants. They will not be allowed in the Tito’s Vodka garden after.

How bout dogs/pets? We ask you to please leave your furry friends at home.

Cancellation Policy – Registration fees are non-refundable. We will offer deferrals to the next year or transfer your race entry to a friend. If you are interested in a deferral or transfer, please email us at:
