The Shore Run/Walk takes place this Sunday, June 12th. If you want to race you can still register for the event at Starbucks in Madison Park or Leschi on Saturday from 8-11 am. Otherwise Denny Blaine residents can line up on Lake Washington Boulevard near Denny Blaine Park or Viretta Park and cheer on the racers. The Shore Run starts at various times: the 5K walk/run starts at 8:15 AM in Leschi, the 10K starts at 9 AM in Seward Park, and the kid’s 1/2 mile run starts at 10:15 AM.
Denny Blaine does not have a commercial district, but it is surrounded by neighborhoods that do. If you are looking for toys for your kids, their friends, or your grandchildren, you used to have several options surrounding Denny Blaine. That was before Two Owls and Precocious, both in Madrona, closed. Luckily, Red Wagon Toys in Madison Park is still in business to the delight of parents and children alike. The store is very organized, with a surprisingly large selection of toys, and a very helpful staff that is exceptionally helpful in suggesting gifts for all ages whether for a boy or a girl.
