“We are pleased that Washington State is open for business from Covid restrictions and Lakefair is back! Lakefair Races will once again be the Saturday of Lakefair on July 16. We welcome all runners of any abilities, especially those frustrated by the lack of running events for the last several years.
We are grateful to Providence, our overall event sponsor, Gastroenterology Associates, our half marathon sponsor, Olympia Orthopedics, our 8k sponsor, and Meyer Law Office, sponsor for our 3k race. We also want to acknowledge in kind sponsors: South Sound Running; South Puget Sound Community College; Green Realty Group; Well 80; Capitol City Marathon; and Trader Joe’s for supporting our races,” said Bob Brennand, chairman of the Lakefair Races committee.
