Lard Butt 1K for below-average athletes and weekend warriors

Calling all below-average athletes or weekend warriors just looking for something fun and philanthropic.

Are you a below-average athlete or a weekend warrior just looking for something fun and philanthropic to participate in? Then the Lard Butt 1K is for you.

Former football player Mark Peterson and his friends decided to look aging in the face and say, "Hold my beer and hand me a donut." They decided to create a run/walk event for anyone who has ever wanted to say they've been a part of a running event but haven't actually gotten off the couch.

Instead of traditional water stations, the Lard Butt 1K will feature donut stations every 250 meters, replace timing chips with chocolate chips, and host a well-stocked beer garden before and after.

So what's the point? To help the community of course! Every participant is also asked to donate at least two cans of non-perishable food items for the University District Food Bank.

Seattle's third annual Lard Butt 1K is set for Saturday, June 9 at Magnuson Park. Joining in on the fun is literally the least you can do for your mind and booty.

Entry cost is $30 in advance and $40 on day of event.
