About the race

The MLT 5K Fun Run & Walk is an annual fundraiser for Mountlake Terrace elementary schools. It is part of the Tour de Terrace community festival and takes place on the fourth Saturday in July. This is a professionally timed event perfect for the whole family.

When run in person, the course is an out and back 5K, starting and ending at the Mountlake Terrace High School. The route winds through the local neighborhoods and a woodsy trail in Terrace Creek Park. The terrain is good for families with jogging strollers, the young, the old and even the competitive. If you have questions, please contact us at MLTFunRun@CedarWayPTO.org

Race goes virtual for 2021!

With continuing uncertainty around large gatherings and social distancing due to COVID, the Cedar Way PTO Board wanted to make sure that we could still have the event this year and have decided to host a virtual race. For those of you who have previously sponsored, ran, or volunteered with the race, we appreciate your help and hope to have your support again this year! 

On Saturday, July 24, 2021, join us outdoors in your own neighborhood as we run or walk together, but apart. Wear your race shirt and race bib. Take a photo and share it with our community on social media using #MLT5K. When you register you will be sent a race in a box which will include everything to make your race fun. Everyone will get an official race bib, race shirt, safety pins and other swag. There will be fun, interactive online activities on race day.  Join in the fun on our Facebook page or keep an eye on the e-mail you registered with.


The cause hasn't changed. The need is still there and we need you.

Sponsorship details are below and registration is now open! Register by Monday, July 19th, to get your packet in time for the race. Adults are $30 each and youth 17 and under are only $20.

Help spread the word!

Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell your walking and running buddies! Please like and share our MLT 5K Fun Run & Walk Facebook page

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2019 MLT 5K Fun Run & Walk! We had 212 registrants that year, as well as scores of volunteers and supporters, turn out for our annual run benefiting local Mountlake Terrace Elementary school students! Many thanks to the Tour de Terrace and to our wonderful sponsors who ensure that we can host an organized, well advertised, and professionally timed event with lots of great raffle prizes! Please support them!  The race results and photos are posted on MLTnews.

This race is a success largely because of the generous sponsors, most of which are small businesses in our community. We encourage you to support them during this difficult time!
