The Burien Brat Trot 5K is a true community celebration that brings out the fun in all of us and it also raises critical funds for Highline Schools Foundation. Brat Trot is a flat and fast 5k and one-mile race throughout the streets of Burien followed by Bavarian Fest, the best street party around! We hope you will join us!


The Highline Schools Foundation was established in 1999 with the purpose of providing community resources to help Highline Public Schools succeed. We believe that by helping to enrich the classroom and school experience, we can engage students to reach a higher level of learning, and the entire community will benefit. The Foundation exists solely for the purpose of providing resources to the nearly 20,000 students in Highline Public Schools.

Sponsorships benefit every student, in every classroom, every day!
