There is a reason Seattle is known for being sleepless! Not only do we run this place, but we know how to rock! There is not a day goes by where we don’t share our creativity through networking with our community. Not only are we known for our music and art, but we may be coming up in the world of food and beverage too. We truly are a melting pot, come venture into our streets like true Seattleites. Experience Seattle for your Rock’n’Roll race weekend, the way the us locals do everyday.
EAT ALL THE THINGS–
I had to make that one bold, because food and running go hand in hand. We all know we are looking for that pre-race carb load, might as well try new places. One thing about Seattle is that we have a little sumthin’ sumthin’ for everyone, and we have vegan cuisine and gluten-free on pretty much every menu, we are diverse people. Our food is as comfy as our fashion, multi-layered. While you are here make sure you find these spots for bites that will make ya wanna sign up for next years’s race to come back for more! They are beloved places to locals, here is your invite to the in- crowd.
