Salmon Run 5k/10k and kid's run

Thank you all for your participation in the 2018 Salmon Run! We were thrilled that you all came out in celebration of salmon, Earth Day, and running. Mark your calendars now for next year’s Salmon Run – April 27, 2019!

Below are the results as recorded by our partners at CWU Recreation. Results will also be posted to the 2018 Salmon Run Facebook event. Congratulations to everyone! The MCE team apologizes to those of you whose bibs we missed as you crossed the finish line. If you recorded your own time and would like it added to the official results, we will gladly do so.

If you would like to share your feedback and help to make the Salmon Run even better in the future, consider responding to our short, anonymous survey. There’s a place at the end of the survey for comments.
