For 36 years the Christmas Rush Fun Run and Walk has been a holiday tradition in Kent. The event features a 10k run and 5k run/walk. The 10k is a flat loop the circles the Kent valley on the Green River Trail. The 5k is a modified out and back that is perfect for those going for a best time or weekend runners and walkers simply out to have a morning run. The course is certified and chip timed with disposable chips. We have a good time and try to focus on the right details to make sure you have a good experience.
