RENTON, Wash. – February 16, 2010 – The Seattle Seahawks, The Landing and the City of Renton today announced the first-ever “Seahawks 12K Run at The Landing.” The Seahawks 12K will include a 12K run, a 5K run/walk, a non-competitive half-mile Kids Run and a Block Party with free games, activities and entertainment. Proceeds for the event will benefit the Renton Skyway Boys and Girls Club.
“The Seahawks organization is excited to host the first-annual Seahawks 12K Run at The Landing to provide a great community event that helps encourage an active and healthy lifestyle that fits with our Play 60 program,” said Mike Flood, Vice President of Community Relations and Special Projects. “Given the success of last year’s Block Party at The Landing, we felt this would be a great community event to get involved with. In the spirit of the 12th Man, we look forward to seeing our fans and friends come out for this event.”
The Seahawks 12K at The Landing will be held on Sunday, April 11 and will start at 8:30 a.m. at The Landing. This year’s event will offer participants three different run options, as well as a community block party to cap off the family-friendly event.
“This is a great opportunity to build on the partnerships we have established with both The Landing and the Seattle Seahawks,” adds Renton Mayor Denis Law. “This family focused event will provide an opportunity to introduce a lot of new people to the many exciting changes happening in Renton.”
