Burien Brat Trot

For countless years, the Burien Brat Trot has been a fun event for all ages, in support of the Highline Schools Foundation. Our 5k has always been a fast and (mostly) flat run/walk route through Old Burien, and new this year — our finish line will take our runners to Town Square Park and the 1st annual Burien Oktoberfest!

Through a partnership with Discover Burien, Burien Brat Trot and Burien Oktoberfest are together for an epic day of fun!

2022 Burien Brat Trot

The Burien Brat Trot is BACK and this year, we are reimagining our hometown race with a new partnership with Burien Oktoberfest!

Join us on Saturday, October 1st for this fast and (mostly) flat 5k and 1k Kid’s Fun Run through the streets of Old Burien and then stick around for the family fun at Burien’s Oktoberfest, featuring a brew festival with local beers from Burien and Seattle breweries, kids activities, games, live entertainment, and even a root beer garden!

Registration NOW OPEN, and Brat Trot registration includes a bib and finisher’s medal, and all adults 21+ will also receive a taster glass and a token good for one free beer taster at the Oktoberfest Brew Festival. Youth finishers will receive a token for a root beer float
