The Biggest Loser RunWalk Half Marathon will take place October 12 with runner packet pick up on the 11th. This is the only Biggest Loser event in the Pacific Northwest. The first time this event was held was last year, in Seattle. In 2013 there were 2,100 participants. Participation is expected to double in 2014. The ultimate goal of Biggest Loser RunWalk is to find a host location where this event can become an annual one. TPA support will be used for marketing, permits and police services.
