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 — the start and finish lines will be adjacent to Town Square Park on SW 152nd St. in Burien, site of Burien Oktoberfest!
Through a partnership with Discover Burien, Burien Brat Trot and Burien Oktoberfest are together for an epic day of fun!
