River scenery races by for runners cruising on Mill Pond Road and over the Snoqualmie River bridges during the Railroad Days 5K, 10K and children’s fun run, set for Saturday morning, Aug. 16, starting in downtown Snoqualmie.

The course remains flat and fast, and includes a leg into Meadowbrook this year. Race time is 8:45 for the children’s 1K, down Railroad Avenue. The 5K and 10K have a 9 a.m. start time, announced by the nearby train whistle.

The run is a good way for high school runners to hone their athletic skills. This is the sixth year that the race has been the Pacific Northwest Track and Field 10K road championship race.

Entry fees are $16 for children, $27 for adults, and include a shirt, while they last. There’s also an option to not purchase a shirt.

Registration is in person at American Family Insurance, next to the 76 Station in Snoqualmie, or online at www.runsnoqualmie.com.
