Back for the 2nd year is the Monster Dash 5K Walk/Run and Little Monster's Dash coming up near the end of October on 10/26. It hosted by and will benefit the South Seattle Community College (SSCC) Cooperative Preschool and will run through Lincoln Park.

The first year saw nearly 150 runners register for the event. The organizers are still seeking sponsors and you can learn more about that opportunity here.

The route runs through Lincoln Park with the start of the race in the South end of the park, near the kids zipline do a double loop in the upper trails, then end back near the starting line. The organizers are urging participants to dress up in their most appropriate Halloween costume for the event.

Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes and of course speed.

The route is still being approved by Seattle Parks Department, but should be finalized soon.

The 5k walk/run starts at 9:00am and the Little Monsters Dash starts at 10:00am.
