SeattleAugust 27, 2017 7K Run & 5K Run/Walk
Cosmo Seattle7K Run & 5K Run/Walk
The Alki Beach 5K is NOW the Cosmo 7K “All Women’s” Run! Historically taking place in Kirkland, WA — The Cosmo 7K is now moving. For the 2017 edition, you’ll find us soaking up the sun along the shores of Alki Beach in Seattle on August 27th. The new 7K Run and 5K Run/Walk courses will feature out/back courses along the shores of Elliott Bay before returning back to Alki Beach for a post run celebration new to the Seattle area featuring fun for the whole family including a Cosmo Kids 1/2 Mile Run for boys & girls 10 and under, live music, goodies/giveaways and of course… Cosmos for all participants over 21!
The Cosmo 7k has chosen Northwest Hope & Healing as the beneficiary of this event. This amazing local organization supports women in breast and gynecologic cancer treatment, and 100% of donations raised at this event will benefit the work they do. Northwest Hope & Healing is no longer managing the Alki Beach 5k, and we welcome all former participants of the Alki Beach 5k to join us in supporting Northwest Hope & Healing at the Cosmo 7k at Alki Beach!
