Run the Puyallup
We all know one of the best things about the Washington State Fair in Puyallup is the food: funnel cakes, corn dogs, turkey legs, and let’s not forget about the much-anticipated Fisher fair scones. Get a jump start on the increased caloric intake by running the Puyallup, beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 31. Proceeds from the 2.67-mile course will go to support the Washington State Fair Foundation.
