RENTON: The 2013 Seahawks 12K Run at The Landing is coming up on Sunday, April 21, 2013! The Seahawks 12K Run will start and finish at The Landing, run along the southeast shore of Lake Washington and offer participants a unique opportunity to run around the Seahawks training facility, the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

The event will also feature the GLOW 5K Run/Walk that will tour The Landing and surrounding Renton neighborhoods, as well as the Seahawks Play 60 Half-Mile Kids Run that will be completely contained within The Landing and not part of the public right-of-way. The Seahawks 12K Run at The Landing will collect donations on behalf of A Better Seattle (ABS). Led by Head Coach Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks, in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Seattle and the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative, ABS is designed to create a culture of safety and peace by reaching at-risk youth and reducing violence in our communities.
