Participants of all ages can compete in the 5K run/walk, while children 12 & under can run in the free kids dash. Everyone can enjoy the post-race festivities that include live music, plenty of food and water, a vendor area and the beer garden for those over 21. Although they are not required, wearing a kilt is strongly encouraged.

 
This year's 5K route will again include a wide "mass start" where almost everyone stands at the very front. Like last year, the route will include a run up the grassy knoll of Kite Hill with bag pipers playing by the side. New this year, the start will include a "Race for the Swords" sprint competition with the three people who grab and run with the swords winning prizes during our post-race celebration.  
   
The course will then wander through the scenic trails and paths in Magnuson Park providing amazing views of Lake Washington and the renovated park prior to returning to Kite Hill and an amazing descent prior to reaching the finish line.  
   
Thanks to the support from www.scotland.org, we will have a number of free giveaways that we will hand out at this year's 2013 Great Kilted Run event inclusive of saltire face transfers, hand clappers and more. They are also donating a good volume of Scottish flags that we will post or hang along the course route and venue. This year's Great Kilted Run will be the most festive ever.  
 
 
THERE MAY EVEN BE BAGPIPES!
