Race the Train attracts a crowd

Runners crowded the streets of North Creek, while their friends and family members lined the sides of the race route to cheer them on during the ninth annual Race the Train event, Aug. 7. More than 300 runners from 17 different states and several from Canada met in North Creek with a common goal - to beat the train.

"The weather cooperated and we welcome the visitors from all over the country to the event," said race coordinator Ann Arsenault. "We seem to grow in popularity each year, which is encouraging."
