Some will mark Saturday’s winter solstice by huddling around a bonfire and wolfing down s’mores. Others will be running.

Participants of the Seward Solstice will take on a 4.2-mile or 10K route that sends them through old-growth forest with Western Red Cedar and Douglas fir in Seattle’s Seward Park. The event is a part of the Winter Trail Series and falls on the start of winter.

“The run happens to be on the winter solstice, so we decided to name it accordingly,” says Eric Bone, owner of Meridian Geographics, which plans a number of trail-running and orienteering events around the region.

“There is no tradition behind this run, but we do hope it will become one.”

The event is open to all. Register at by Thursday. The 4.2-mile race costs $26 and the 10K costs $31.
