The run is one loop (5K-ish) or two loops (10K-ish) around Green Lake. This is an informal, fun event. Don't take it too seriously.


Help make the Blerch glow like a sweaty cherub by volunteering. Volunteer assignments will be made one week prior to the run. Please arrive at noon. Volunteers should plan on not running.


Can I bring my (well-behaved) dog?
Unfortunately, no. The path is not super wide and it'll be pretty dark out, so for everyone's safety--no dogs.

Can I bring my kid in a stroller and run?
For the same reasons as above, sorry, no strollers.

What is your refund policy?
The Blerch Holiday Run has a no-refund policy.

Is there a virtual option?
Nope, no virtual option.

If I can't run, can I transfer my bib to someone else?
Sorry, no transfers.
