Post Race Party Including 21 & Over Beer Garden with Live Entertainment
The Michelob ULTRA Seafair Pirate Run will take place Saturday, July 25 at 6:30 p.m. at Seattle Center. Don't miss your chance to dress up in your best pirate gear and run alongside thousands of other scurvy seadogs in the most swashbuckling fun run of the year. Look out for talking parrots, golden doubloons and scull-and-crossbones flags along the route!
Did we mention the best part? The race route is the same as the Alaska Airlines Seafair Torchlight Parade route! Seattle Seafair Pirates will light off the start "canon", while over 150,000 spectators will line 4th Avenue, cheering you on all the way. Cheer teams, music and water stations manned by the Seafair Clowns, Seafair Princesses and other exciting personalities await you as you make your way through Seattle.
The top three finishers from each gender in each category will be awarded prizes at the end of the evening in an Awards Ceremony at the Alaska Airlines stage at the Seafair Torchlight FanFest!

Raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska
The Seattle Ronald McDonald House is excited to partner with Seafair on the Torchlight Run once again! This year we are asking race participants to help raise $100 each by creating a personalized fundraising webpage to ask their friends and family for support. These are much-needed funds that will go a long way in supporting the Seattle Ronald McDonald House and the more than 700 families who call it a home-away-from-home each year while their child receives medical treatment. Did you know that a $25 donation sponsors one night of housing for a family at the House?
As an added bonus, each runner who meets the $100 goal will be entered into a drawing to win exciting prizes and gift certificates to local businesses! Sign up to raise funds when you register - CLICK HERE.
The finish chute at the event will be lined with food and drinks for your recovery after the race!
