Since 2010, the Big Backyard 5K has raised more than $300,000 – funds that have improved Your Big Backyard. Get signed up to join in the fun at Marymoor Park this weekend!
The 2018 BBY5K sponsored by Kaiser Permanente is happening at 9 a.m. Sunday at King County’s Marymoor Park. Visit the site to register. If you register soon enough, you can use Discount Code KPThrive to get $20 off. Once registered, you can pick up your race bib, your BBY5K t-shirt, and – if you’re getting them – your BBY5K hoodie and coffee mug between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday at Super Jock ‘n Jill in Redmond. Or, just grab them before the race between 7 and 9 a.m. Sunday morning at the event.
Founded in 2010, the BBY5K is a 5K run and walk that benefits King County Parks by bringing financial support for maintenance and operations in your Big Backyard. Join 1,500 of your closest friends for a stroll around Marymoor Park. The BBY5K is dog, stroller and family friendly! Stick around after your run or walk for a free Kid’s Dash, refreshing drinks, tasty foods, great tunes and prize giveaways.
The Department of Natural Resources and Parks’ Parks and Recreation Division looks after “Your Big Backyard” — more than 28,000 acres of parks and natural lands; including Marymoor Park, Cougar Mountain Regional Wildland Park, 175 miles of regional trails, 180 miles of backcountry trails, and a world-class aquatic center. By cultivating strong relationships with non-profit, corporate and community partners, King County Parks enhances park amenities while reducing costs.
