Soon we’ll race again!

Little Backyard Adventure at LBA Park in Olympia is back, baby!
The race will happen on July 31st, 2021 and we are stoked!

Well, to be perfectly honest, after a year stuck inside stepping into the sunlight and taking the organizational steps to put one a community event seems daunting, but I’m ready for it. Ready to get back out there. Ready to embrace (metaphorically) hundreds of runners coming to Olympia to race these awesome woods.

I hope you are ready too!

Things will be different the year and that is exactly what I am feverishly working on. Making the race and the entire event safe and still just as fun as the first time around.
Next week we open registration, let’s go!
