Walk in an expanding vibrant city, which is growing and moving into the 21st century. Although the Federal Way Light Rail Station is not yet open, the 10K route qualifies for the Light Rail Challenge because it safely passes by the construction site of the future Station (the 5K does not). The route also includes a walk up the Civic Center’s steps and in through Steel Lake Park.
