Thousands of runners coming to Renton for Seahawks 12K Run Sunday

Thousands of runners will converge on Renton Sunday for the 2013 Seahawks 12K Run starting and ending at The Landing, which will affect traffic in the area.

The event will also feature the GLOW 5K Run/Walk that will tour The Landing and surrounding Renton neighborhoods, as well as the Seahawks Play 60 Half-Mile Kids Run that will be completely contained within The Landing and not part of the public right-of-way.
