Run of the Mill - Saturday, June 30th (weekend before 4th of July)
The Run of the Mill is a 5k (3.1 mile) race in Mill Creek Washington. It is the longest standing annual event in Mill Creek. Since 2006, the race has been a fundraising event to benefit those fighting cancer. The ROTM is a very fun event – not only because the race itself has become a very respected and competitive 5k, but also because before and after the race, the event is a fun, community event with booths, prize give-aways, music, cash awards and great community spirit. It’s a great opportunity for WEST swimmers and parents to show their community love and support. Click here to learn more information.
Here is the link if WEST swimmers/parents are interested in volunteering for the Run of the Mill. 
WEST swimmers and parents can use the Jackson Signup Genius page or Archbishop Murphy Signup Genius page.  Volunteers can put WEST after their name (or their respective local high school) on the volunteer sheet for the event that has a field for organization. Make sure to wear your WEST team spirit if you are racing/volunteering!
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to either Amber at or Coach Tim at
Happy Swimming Folks!
