Anywhere you like!



Challenge your chums and run like a salmon! It's virtual. And anywhere.

Vashon Park District's 2022 Chum Run is a virtual run (or swim or walk or bike) to fundraise for our youth scholarship fund and to give you a chance to keep fit. The scholarship fund helps our Island youth in need of financial assistance attend camps and programs that might otherwise be out of reach.

It's your choice to run a virtual 5K / 10K / Half Marathon or Marathon on any date through December 31st. You can run these virtual races on your own time, on your own course, and your own date. You can run them from anywhere in the whole wide world, even on a treadmill in your basement. By registering for the Chum Run, you'll receive a race bib, shirt, and our nonedible salmon medal.

As we said, you can also walk, swim, or bike - it's really up to you! Whatever you decide, we know you're faster than your chum in Loveland or your cousin in Des Moines, so challenge them to join you and help send a kid to swim lessons!

Swag will be available to pick up in early January at our Ober Park office building. We will mail swag to registrants living outside of Vashon Island. Bibs may be available for pick-up before the race. Give us a call Monday - Friday, 9 AM - 4 PM at (206) 463-9602 to arrange grabbing them. 

Why should I participate?

  • This event helps raise funds for our island youth needing scholarship assistance to attend VPD camps and programs.
  • Because you need exercise.  Vashon Park District thinks it's important to encourage a healthy lifestyle and we want you to … move. 
  • Bonus...many students are looking for ways to count activities for PE...this might count!

Would you like to receive a digital Finishers Certificate?

Once you have completed your event, go back to our race event site, find the "Results" button and add your individual times.  A digital certificate will be emailed to you. Remember, since you run your own course, you set where the finish line is located.  Many people use smartphones and watches with GPS to tell them how far they have gone. You can also Google your course online and figure out your distance before you go...just make sure to time yourself! We encourage you to send us pictures!
