On your mark, get set... register now for the 36th annual 8.8K Loop Run

The 36th annual 8.8K Loop Run is Saturday, Aug. 17. That's Day 4 of the county Fair.

Sponsored by Island Rec and Xtreme Fitness, the Loop Run, or walk, if you prefer, begins at 9 a.m. near the intersection of Spring and Second streets (in front of Friday Harbor Drug).

Participants can register online, at, or in person at the Island Rec office, 580 Guard St., 1-5 p.m., or on the day of the run, in the parking lot of Wells Fargo Bank, which doubles as runner check-in, from 7:30-8:45 a.m.

An awards ceremony follows the run, with medals awarded to the top three finishers in five separate age categories.

Registration fees: $25, age 13 and up, and $20 for children 12 and under. Registration includes a Loop Run t-shirt and free pass into the San Juan County Fair on Saturday.

For more information, or to volunteer, contact Island Rec, 378-4953.
