2300 Arboretum Dr E
Seattle, WA 98112
Combine exercise, education, and entertainment on a fun running tour through the amazing 230-acre Washington Park Arboretum, one of Seattle’s Olmsted Parks and home to the University of Washington Botanic Gardens’ world-class plant collections. You will learn about the history and design of the park, a few choice plants, and traditional or modern uses of various plants along the route.
This tour will cover about 3 miles and be held at a leisurely running pace (11-12 minute mile). We will be slowing to a walk at points of interest but running between, so please be prepared to be moving the entire time. We will be running over both paved and uneven terrains, with some elevation change. Participants should dress for the weather and bring a water bottle.
