2023 Obliteride 5K Route

Be part of an amazing community as you walk or run with us this year.


5K Walk/Run

Feel the joy on this updated 5K route as you join a welcoming community committed to ending cancer! Our family-friendly 5K takes walkers and runners from the University of Washington to Gas Works Park, with one water stop at the halfway mark. For most of the route, you’ll follow Seattle’s multi-use Burke-Gilman Trail. This route is flat, fully paved, and great for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. Download the 5K GPS route.

START TIME: 9 a.m.

START LINE: University of Washington, E-18 parking lot

FINISH LINE: Gas Works Park

Due to external factors (such as weather, road conditions, construction, etc.) all timing and routes are subject to change. There will be a number of safety and support elements for Obliteride on August 12. Any pre-event training on the Obliteride routes must be done at your own risk.
