Welcome

Race Results are available here!


Thank you for your support!

The Friendship Run has been Olympia’s favorite St. Patrick’s Day tradition for the last 13 years!

Join the fun at our family-friendly morning of running and funning!  Come run or walk a beautiful 5K on a paved path.  Well-behaved dogs and strollers are welcome.  Run a lovely 10K course through the Evergreen State College campus.

Register your child for the FREE Kids Run – all kids running will receive a prize!  Registration for the Kids Run will also be available on race day.

All proceeds from the Friendship Run event benefit Olympia’s Westside Cooperative Preschool, a local 501c-3 charitable organization providing access to quality early childhood education.

As always, you can look forward to:

  • 5K Run/Walk, including stroller division
  • 10K Run
  • FREE Kids Run (ages 2-8)
  • Awesome swag
  • Prizes for overall and age group male and female finishers
  • All Race participants receive one raffle ticket—lots of great prizes
  • Many fantastic items donated by local sponsors for our raffle – additional raffle tickets available for purchase ($2 each)
