The infamous Grinch has threatened to spoil all of the holiday merriment in our little town of Sno-Who-Mish! Runners & walkers can help restore holiday order by Chasing the Grinch out of town on December 8th at 9 a.m. The fun-run 5K and 10k routes start and finish at our “Cheermeister Village” at 405 Third Street in Snohomish. The route takes you along the picturesque Centennial Trail. This fun & mostly flat 5K & 10K distance is a fully supported out-and-back course. Runners return to a festive & fun finish line with hot chocolate & post-run snacks, as well as entertainment & photo ops galore!NEW THIS YEAR! See the Grinch and friends for a special photo op on the race course at the Grinch's home on snowy Mount Crumpit!

Don’t worry, the kids will have a chance to help too! Our Christmas Gnome will send kids 13 & under on their way for the ½ mile Kids Dash. Parents may accompany their kids on the dash. They’ll return for hot cocoa, cider, cookies & their very own finisher medal for helping to get rid of the grumpy Grinch!


Wear your most fun & festive attire to help spread holiday joy as we continue the yearly tradition in Historic Downtown Snohomish!

Start/Finish at Averill Field next to Snohomish Boys and Girls Club
