The 3day Route!

They finally released the route for the 3day starting on Sept. 7th. It will be as follows:

This year our event will commence at the beautiful campus of Bellevue Community College. From the college you will head west through Bellevue onto the I-90 trail. Crossing over several of Lake Washington’s waterways, you will make your way across Mercer Island onto the I-90 Bridge. Once you cross the bridge into Seattle, you will head south along Lake Washington on the Lake Washington Loop trail. You will enjoy several beautiful pit stops at some of Seattle’s most scenic parks on the shores of Lake Washington. You will make your way through Renton, Tukwila and SeaTac and end the day in the city of Burien at our overnight campsite.

Day Two starts bright and early heading south from Burien, passing through SeaTac and into the lovely city of Des Moines. Enjoy scenic views of Puget Sound at our beautiful lunch stop right on the water. You'll head north from lunch into the quaint city of Normandy Park, passing through some wonderful neighborhoods with plenty of shade. From Normandy Park you will continue heading north, back into Burien for another fun night at camp!

Day Three starts with a short bus ride from camp to the beginning of the route and a scenic walk on Alki Beach right along Puget Sound. You will be happy to see very few hills on this day and with mileage at just 15 miles, you'll have plenty of time to enjoy all of the sites. We have several fun pit stops planned for you today as well! After lunch you will make your way across the ship canal under the West Seattle Bridge. You'll head north through the city on one of Seattle’s oldest streets, passing amazing landmarks such as Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market. The last few miles of your route take you through the heart of downtown as you make your way to Closing Ceremonies. We are very excited to announce that this year’s Closing Ceremonies will be at Memorial Stadium at the Seattle Center. They are very excited to welcome back the Breast Cancer 3-Day for this year’s event.
