TBD 2019

Presented by West Seattle Runner

Float Dodger 5K will not be taking place in 2018 due to rising costs of permit fees and other factors. We are already working hard on a race for 2019 so please stay tuned! Meanwhile, please join West Seattle Runner for a casual group run the morning of the parade on July ​21 at 9:30am to run the parade route and watch the parade from the store afterward. 

Thank you for your continued support of this event. We will see you in 2019. 


Welcome to West Seattle Float Dodger 5K, Seattle's most fun summer running tradition! 

Imagine running down California Ave SW, a main drag usually reserved for cars. Imagine being cheered by thousands of people, the entire length of the run. Imagine trying to outrun spectacular parade floats of the West Seattle Summer Parade. All of this can be yours at the West Seattle Float Dodger 5K.  

Finish your run with a root beer float!
