Some roads in Renton will close for a time Sunday for the 2011 Seahawks 12K Run at the Landing Sunday.

The event is expected to draw thousands of participants to Renton.

The Seahawks 12K Run will start at 9 a.m. and finish at The Landing, run along the southeast shore of Lake Washington and offer participants a unique opportunity to run around the Seahawks training facility, the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

The event will also feature the Valley Medical Center 5K Run/Walk that will also start at 9 a.m. and tour The Landing and surrounding Renton neighborhoods, as well as the Seahawks Play 60 Kids Run that starts at 10:30 a.m. and will be completely contained within The Landing.

The Seahawks 12K Run at The Landing will help raise money for the Renton/Skyway Boys & Girls Club.

Participants can register online. Also they can register for the run from 7:30 a.m.-9:45 a.m. on Sunday before the races begin. The cost to register on race day is $45 for the 12K Run; $40 for the 5K Run/Walk, and $10 for the Kids Run.

Participants can pick up race packets a day early, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, at the Packet Pick-up Event in the community room at The Landing, in between Panda Express and Verizon Wireless. Runners can also register then. Payment is by check or cash.

More information, including a schedule of events and detailed route maps, is available online.
