    The actual run there isn’t much to it, but once you finish the venue hosting the event allows you to show your bib and you get free entry into the museum, which is world class. The start and finish of the race is in the Bone Yard of the museum, alongside some of the biggest and most historic planes to of ever been produced. Really makes up for the rest of the course basically being along the runway of Boeing Field.

    This race was highly organized by the Orca Running Team! The course was beautiful as we started and finished running though historically famous aircraft at the Museum of Flight! The rest of the course is fast, flat, and family friendly as the course is closed off to traffic! After the race you get the best finisher medal on earth and free entry to enjoy a full day of family fun!

    Orca running always puts on a fun run. They are supportive ie: cheering, food, photographers! Their swag is always top notch. Got 5k is a flat fun course going through the out door airplane display at the Museum of Flight. Bonus free entry to museum at the end.

    * Nicest design medal ever (love my bling)! And great T-shirt design
    * Unsure if could have brought dog. Think I was the only one walking with my dog. Love races that allow dogs.
    * No water/aid station along course.
    * Nice flat course.
    * Very cool to have FREE admission to the Museum of Flight!

    The free grilled cheeses were awesome and the medal is amazing. There were no water stations on the course except for at the end. And other than the beginning or end you’re just running on the road, not very scenic.

    This run was fun to do. The weather was good and it was a flat course. It’s one that I would do again and the airplane medal is awesome. Also when you do this run you get into the flight of museum for free that day.

    Fun race with admission to the museum as a perk! The course was really easy, but it was well marked and nicely laid out. Only real concern is that the active road was not marked off. There was some guy yelling at people halfway through. This could have gone a little better.

    As I’ve never done a real 5K before, this was a new experience to me. Everybody was awesome and I had a great time. When I couldn’t run any more and started to walk, I received positive motivational comments from other runners. There were even water and snack stations for after the race. The closest thing to a “complaint” that I could make would be to say that because I’m starting to do runs as a way to help me lose weight, I was surprised to see stuff like doughnut holes at the food/snack station, but I still was grateful to get it either way. High praise from me for this and I’ll be signing up to do it again next year!

    Great 5K course for a PR effort (flat and straight), with a neat experience of running through and alongside a massive airport hangar. Great medals and shirts, plus free admission to the museum afterwards. Would recommend.

    This is an out and back course on pavement. It starts out inside the Museum of Flight, cool stuff to look at and a way to stay warm. Coffee truck and free grilled cheese sandwiches were available on site. So many nice, clean and line free porta potties (long lines for indoor bathroom). Baggage check available, but do bring your own bag. Close parking in lots, but would have been nice to know that many of the lots were on the course and you would not be able to leave until the race is over which is quite a bit after most 5kers finish. The kids race was adorable. The course was well marked. The airplane medals were cool. The shirts are techish. I’d do it again and have already been raving to my running friends.
