About Husky 5K

Annual UW Bothell Husky 5K
Bothell, WA

For more than 15 years, the UW Bothell Husky 5k Run/Walk, which is organized by the UW Bothell Alumni Council, attracts more than 1,000 runners and walkers — and welcomes more 1,500 other friends, family, faculty, staff and students to campus.

The event not only features the 5k Run/Walk through campus and downtown Bothell but also includes the Cascadia Pups and Cubs 1k. There is music, family-oriented attractions such as a bouncy house, a complimentary breakfast immediately after the race, prizes and giveaways for participants — and friendly faces at our many sponsor booths!

All proceeds from the race benefit UW Bothell student scholarships. This run is one of the only events in the area devoted to this increasingly important cause, and UW Bothell is proud to support students in their endeavors as they pursue their education in difficult economic times.
