Registration is open for the 11th annual Kent Cornucopia Days Fun Run and Walk, at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 12.

Kent Parks’ program coordinator Mark Hendrickson said the race is a summer tradition for many residents throughout the Puget Sound.

“The course is U.S. Track and Field certified and is one of the few flat courses in the area," he said. "We’ll have awards for the top five finishers in each age group, with prizes and gift certificates from many local businesses.”

Hosted by the Kent Parks Recreation and Community Services, the race entrance fee is $10 or $25 (with a technical T-shirt) before July 10.  Participants age 60 and older run for free courtesy of the Tab Wizard.

Register online at or pick up registration forms at the Kent Commons and many Puget Sound athletic stores.

The race starts at Three Friends Fishing Hole, 20025 Russell Road, near the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum. Parking is available at Iron Mountain Storage.

Avoid the lines on race day; pick up shirts and bibs Wednesday, July 9 between 3 and 7 p.m. at Road Runner Sports at Kent Station.

Race day registration and packet pick up is also available near the start/finish line at 7:30 a.m.
