As Seattle takes a step forward, WSDOT, agency partners and sponsors invite you to celebrate the past, present, and future of the Emerald City. With this theme in mind, Step Forward will be a weekend full of festivities. Kicking off the festivities will be the Tunnel to Viaduct 8K Run/Walk on Saturday. Following this, Step Forward will be offering multiple events throughout the day including a ribbon cutting ceremony, free 2-mile tunnel walk, community celebration and art festival along the viaduct, concert and more. Sunday, the festivities continue with the Tunnel Ride, a community bike ride through the tunnel and. on the viaduct! For a complete festival schedule and free tickets, visit our website at www.99stepforward.com

Our goal is to reflect on the past while exploring Seattle’s future. By participating in the 8K run/walk, you will be one of the first people to ever step foot in the new tunnel while also capitalizing on one last opportunity (seriously, this time we mean it) to run atop Seattle’s iconic viaduct, taking in breathtaking views of Seattle’s skyline and the Puget Sound.
