Runners and walkers took part in the first Mountlake Terrace 5K Fun Run/Walk on July 28. Friends, families, and neighbors gathered at MTHS at 8:30 a.m. to begin the 5K (equivalent to about 3 miles).
Part of the three day Tour de Terrace festival, the fun run/walk raised money for Cedar Way Elementary, Mountlake Terrace Elementary and Terrace Park Elementary (the three elementary schools in MLT).
172 participants ran, walked, and even one man biked through the streets of Mountlake Terrace. The route was described on the event website as “winding its way through the scenic back roads of Mountlake Terrace.”
The event had tremendous community support. Members of MTHS ASB were positioned along the route, cheering on the participants. The Mountlake Terrace Police Department was on scene, protecting and also cheering on the runners and walkers. Many local businesses sponsored the event, with gold sponsors being MLTnews, Red Onion Restaurant, Home Street Bank, Cascade Elite Gymnastics, Back to Action Chiropractic, Blue Flame Heating and Air Conditioning and Gabriel’s Fire Restaurant.
The participants were divided up into age groups of 10 and under, 11-16, and 17 and older.
