about Captain Jack’s Treasure Run

Pre-game Halloween with your best pirate costume while running up a storm on your home turf! Captain Jack’s Treasure Run has been bringing you oodles of swash-buckling running fun for 7 years in a row.  We’ve got three distances, 5K, 8K and 12K for you to choose from.  All participants will receive a finisher’s medal, Captain Jack’s race shirt, race bib, and a piece of treasure from the treasure chest! 

Captain Jack’s Treasure Run takes place on land historically inhabited by the following Native American tribes:

Coast Salish
dxʷdəwʔabš Duwamish
stuləgʷábš Stillaguamish

Environmentally Responsible Racing

Save a Tee Plant a Tree

Trees not Tees help events reduce their environmental impact with one simple strategy – offering participants the choice of turning down a free race tee and planting a tree instead.

Orca Running is partnering with Trees not Tees to help reduce the huge number of unwanted and unworn finisher’s tees produced each year and destined to become landfill.

After the event, participants who selected the option to have a tree planted receive a photo and GPS coordinates of their tree’s location.

All distances will run out and back on the beautiful Sammamish River Trail. Both the 8k and the 12k will run to the north and the 5k will run to the south.


Orca Running is committed to reducing waste and protecting the environment.  As part of this commitment, we are making all events cupless. The tiny little cups that are used for an instant generate tremendous amounts of garbage. We recommend you purchase a handheld bottle, a hydration pack, or we can provide you with a small re-useable cup that folds easily into your waistband to use during the entire race and future races.


First off, don’t forget to carpool!  There is a large parking garage located at 8711 160th Ave NE, Redmond, 98052.  There is no parking at Redmond City Hall or Library.  However there are plenty of other options for parking in downtown Redmond all within a 5-10 minute walk.


All awards for 2021 will be mailed out!  Awards will be given to the top 3 overall men and women in each distance.


Each and every Orca Running race supports a charity. We will be donating a small portion of every entry fee to Children’s Country Home.


We have a clear set of policies that we uniformly follow for all races. Entries are not refundable, but you can defer your entry, transfer it to another race, or transfer it to another participant. You can review our full set of policies here.

Postdoc Brewery in Redmond is donating all of the delicious brews for the Beer Garden!  Each beer is $5 and 100% of money collected goes directly to the Woodinville Firefighters Benevolent Fund.
