The City of Issaquah has been designated as the first-ever Innovation Partnership Zone for Sports Medicine in Washington State, and will hold the inaugural Issaquah Sports Medicine Combine event at Lake Sammamish State Park, on Saturday July 13th.
To kick off the Sports Medicine Combine event, the city is also staging a 5k Run/Walk for Sports Medicine Education at 8:00am.
In partnership with Swedish Medical, Quest Physical Therapy, CrossFunction Sports Massage, Plateau Runner & IRGPT, the special 5k Run/Walk will help the seven time state champion Issaquah High School Sports Medicine Program raise the necessary funds to assist the program in their continued community focused ventures, such as providing valuable medical support at local sporting events.
The 5k Run/Walk will be held through the beautiful surroundings of Lake Sammamish State Park, starting and finishing at Sunset Beach. The run/walk is also unique as it will be the most medically supported fun run in the region. There will be FREE pre and post race massages, taping and first aid assistance along with presentations on correct running biomechanics, yoga for runners and injury prevention immediately after the event. If you ever wanted to finish a 5km and wasn’t sure if you could do it, this event is both the time and place to do it.
For more seasoned athletes, prizes will be awarded to the top finisher in the male, female, youth boys and girls (U-18). Race fees are $10 pre-registered online which entitles you to go into the draw to win a prize from our major sponsor. In-person registration and check-in begins at 7:00am and closes at 7:45am.
