Not too late to register for first-ever Seagull Splat run

The first-ever Seagull Splat 5K Run is a week away and runners still have time to register.

The new event, conducted by Fathoms o’ Fun, will start at 12:30 p.m. May 24. A portion of the proceeds will benefit VFW Post 2669 to help local military and veteran families.

The run is held in conjunction with the Seagull Calling Festival and Kitsap Harbor Festival.

Individuals can register online at www.fathomsofun.org by clicking on the link for credit card payment or go to the pdf writeable application and fill it out and mail it in with a check. Pre-register to guarantee a T-shirt. Day of race registration and packet pick up will be at the Port Orchard Marina Waterfront upper playground area closest to new pathway entrance, between 9 a.m. and noon.

The 5-kilometer run will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the west end of the Comfort Inn on Bay Street. There will be a race map in the runner’s packet or they can obtain one at registration. The course runs from Bay Street, loops through West Bay Center, continues along Beach Drive to Olney at the turnaround, runs the length and back of the Annapolis Dock and finishes at the Port Orchard Marina Waterfront Park.

There also will be two “Kids Dashs” for ages 3-5 and 6-9. Registration on race day is between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Port Orchard Marina Park. Entry fee is $5.

The dash will follow the run, approximately at 2 p.m. All participants will receive a toy.

There will be extra/overflow parking available at the lower lot of the South Kitsap High School parking lot for runners and festival goers.
