Turns out there are two Alki events this Sunday potentially involving you and your feet (etc.): Along with the Alki Beach 5K benefit run/walk, there’s also the “Alki Overlook Stairway Walk Adventure“:

This Sunday at 10 AM, everyone’s invited to the first of three West Seattle stairway walks happening between now and mid-October. Jake and Cathy Jaramillo, authors of a blog and an upcoming book on Seattle stairway walks, will take you on a scenic byway loop along four major stairways between Schmitz Park and Alki Beach. The walk features vistas over Alki, a stroll next to Alki Beach, and a meander through shaded, old-growth Schmitz Park. It will cover 3.4 miles and take about two hours. There will be an elevation gain and loss of 300 feet, with some short but moderately steep sections near the end. For all the details, go to the Feet First website.

Bonus – it’s free! P.S. Jake and Cathy’s website Seattle Stairway Walks is here.
