The Radar: Eat Run Hope, Then Eat Some More

Here’s everything you need to know about this event and why you should register summed up in two words: BACON RELAY.

And in case that isn’t enough information, here’s what Eat Run Hope really is: A 5K run/walk around picturesque Seward Park followed by a culinary sampling of Seattle’s most talented chefs with all proceeds benefiting The Fetal Health Foundation, a cause close to the hearts of organizers Ethan and Angela Stowell (yes, THAT Ethan Stowell, Seattle restaurant titan).

Just think, instead of the standard post-run banana halves, stale bagels and Gatorade,  you’ll have eats from the following participating restaurants:

Ethan Stowell Restaurants
II Corvo
Dot’s Delicatessan
Huxley Wallace Collective
La Bête
Taste at SAM
Terra Plata
Tom Douglas Restaurants
Wandering Goose

Plus wine pairings and local microbrews. Eat Run Hope? More like Sign. Me. Up.

If you want to do the eat part only or the run part only, you sure can. But if you register for both (eat and run … or I guess it’s really run then eat), you’ll receive a free ticket to a Seattle Mariners game.
