The return of the NEPO 5K Don’t Run

How do you top a 5K run that is actually not a run? You do it again, but make the course the reverse of the previous year’s.

This year’s art-centric NEPO 5K Don’t Run will start at 4 p.m. Sept. 8 at the NEPO House, 1723 S. Lander St., Seattle, and participants will hop, skip, jump or otherwise amble for 3 miles to Kobe Terrace Gardens in the ID. Along the way, organizers say, the nonrunners will encounter “city streets populated with artwork, installations and performing artists” on a route that this year is “reversed, shortened and almost entirely downhill!” (We at ArtsPage HQ raise a water bottle to that.)

Even more good news: The finish line show, 6-10 p.m., includes a DJ, multimedia show, live music and butoh dance, a popup store, food trucks and a beer garden. Sounds like the most fun you can have without a runner’s high. Info here.
