What do you call a scenic 5K/10K and Kid’s 1 Mile along the Snohomish River with DJs every mile that’s preceded by a street fair, a barbecue, an ice cream eating contest, a carnival and a rockin’ night concert? KLA HA YA BEATS! Welcome to the newest Beats Run of 2016 and celebrate summer with some old fashion Snohomish Kla Ha Ya Days festival fun before the run. The native word “Kla Ha Ya” means “Welcome” and for over 100 years, families have gathered in Historic Downtown Snohomish to welcome summer and welcome visitors. Now it’s our turn to crank up the Beats and welcome YOU to run the 2016 Kla Ha Ya Beats Run.
A portion of proceeds go to the Snohomish Education Foundation and the Snohomish High School X-Country Team.
