Course Description

This certified 5K route is an "out and back", starting next to Redmond City Hall in their Municipal Campus Park and immediately joining the Sammamish River Trail heading north. The scenic route takes runners and walkers up to around the 11100 block before turning around to finish at Municipal Campus Park. This is a flat fast route that will lend itself to fast paces and quick times! Click here for a course map:  Course Map
