Seagull Splat 5K set for May 25

Also: Seagull Calling Festival, Cook-Off to run concurrently

PORT ORCHARD — Get ready for some overhead seagull dive bombing practice runs as you hit the race course a week from Saturday!

The Fathoms O’ Fun Festival’s 6th Annual Seagull Splat 5K Run will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, at the downtown Port of Bremerton’s Port Orchard Marina Park. A kids’ dash for children ages 3-5 and 6-9 will kick off at 10 a.m.

Registration on the day of the race will open at 7:30 a.m. for those who haven’t signed up yet to take on the beautiful race course with views of Sinclair Inlet.

Visit www.fathomsofun.org, then click on “events” for an application form, or go to www.Eventbrite.com and search for “Seagull Splat Run” to register online.

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s run will go to help fund the Fathoms O’ Fun Royalty Scholarship Program. Sharron King, Fathoms director, said members of the Royalty Court will put in upwards of 1,500 cumulative volunteer hours during their reign this year.

The race is sponsored by Kitsap Physical Therapy.

After the run, the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce’s Seagull Calling Festival will take place at the waterfront’s edge to coincide with the organization’s Wings Cook-Off event. Also taking place next Saturday will be the Pirates Rendezvous vendor show, as well as the regular Saturday Farmers Market.
