Join the Snohomish Running Company and
Historic Downtown Snohomish Association

to Chase the Grinch out of Sno-Who-Mish!

 December 19th and 20th

The Grinch has been a cagey feller these last few years. To help out in chasing down the elusive Grinch we have brought in a Grinch catching specialist, The Snohomish Running Company. The Historic Downtown Snohomish Association is partnering with the Snohomish Running Company to help ensure the funnest, safest and most enjoyable 5K and 10K run/walk yet. 


This year's Chase the Grinch out of Sno-Who-Mish will feature a socially distanced and COVID-19 mitigated live run on December 19th and 20th. Participants will be able to choose their own start times while at the same time enjoying fun on course decorations and cut-outs. For those who aren't quite feeling up to running down a Grinch in a crowd, a virtual run option is available from December 16th through December 24th. Each participant will get a custom buff, finisher medal and bib number with their registration. Custom race shirts are available for an additional $10. Need some warming up before you chase down the Grinch? Take part in the Chase the Grinch Semi-Virtual Beer Run between December 16th and 24th. Beer run will be $10 for participants or $15 for non-participants.

Running route will be an out-and-back starting and finishing along the Centennial Trail across the parking lot from Averill Field in Snohomish. Participants will be required to wear masks prior to the run and immediately following the run. Masks will not be required during the run as long as you are 6 feet away from another participant. Other COVID-19 mitigation plans will also be enacted throughout the event.

$25 for 5K and $35 for 10K (Will need a special code)
