Christmas Rush

Saturday December 11th, 2021

Kent, WA

Official Website


The Kent Parks Department cares about the health and safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers, and community. As such, we will follow the King County mandate requiring people ages 12 and over to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result to participate in the Christmas Rush. Additionally, masking is required.

With the goal of balancing ease of use for patrons with safety, we will accept photos or copies of vaccine cards/test results or electronic proof.
People ages 12 and over who are not fully vaccinated must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test (taken within 72 hours of the race). Self-reported negative test results that are not from a test provider, laboratory, or health care provider cannot be accepted.

According to King County mandate, these policies will remain in effect through March 16, 2022 and will be reevaluated at that time or sooner based on the status and impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak in King County.

The Christmas Rush will celebrate 39 years on December 11. It features a 5k run/walk and a 10k run. along the scenic green river.  Due to construction taking place near Vandoren's Landing, the 10k will be an out and back this year.  

Participants age 12 and under run for free courtesy of Tab Wizard and Kent Bowl!

Awards will be give to the overall winners in each age group following the race.
