The Super Jock 'n Jill Half Marathon and Fun Run/Walk, presented by Cold Fusion Foods is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 4. This annual Labor Day event originating at Redhook Brewery in Woodinville, raises money for Woodinville Parks and Recreation, supporting the new Art Walk at Wilmot Park along the Sammamish River Trail. The Half Marathon also supports many non-profit groups, high school teams and running clubs. The Super Jock 'n Jill Half Marathon and Fun Run/Walk will attract about 2,500 runners and walkers.

   The half marathon starts and finishes at Redhook Brewery, 14300 NE 145th in Woodinville. The course runs between Bothell and 60 Acres Park in Redmond on the Sammamish. The Super Jock 'n Jill Half Marathon introduces a new starting time and route for half marathon walkers.
