6th Annual Get Your 6.6 on Route 66!
8/24/19
McLean
Something new and exciting this year: Our shirts were designed by an Olympia High School student—Clayton Ford of Atlanta. He won the design contest we coordinated with Olympia art teacher Sandra Pitcher. I’m attaching a mock-up of the design, as well as a selection of photos from last year and our race logo.

Last year we fell just short of our goal of 200 participants (198! So close!), and we’re hoping to surpass that this year. People have told us that they love the opportunity to run or walk on Route 66 and support our efforts to revitalize our small town of McLean.
