Beat The Blerch is a 10k, half marathon, and full marathon inspired by this comic about running. There are back-to-back marathons on both Saturday and Sunday. Race highlights: Matthew Inman (AKA The Oatmeal) will be signing books, there will be large quantities of birthday cake at every aid station [in addition to Nutella and magical grape beverages], and ridiculously awesome goodie bags stuffed with stickers, snacks, and Blerch surprises. The course itself begins at King County’s Tolt MacDonald Park, and it's a beautiful flat, out-and-back course that winds its way through evergreen, mossy forests along the Snoqualmie valley trail. The course is about 90 - 95% trail (crushed gravel & dirt).
