Special Sounder trains for June 7 Race for the Cure event

Whether you run, walk, or just cheer at the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation’s annual Race for the Cure, Sounder commuter rail can get you to and from the event at Qwest Field on Sunday, June 7.

The special Sounder service, dubbed Ride for the Cure, will serve Sounder stations in Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner, Auburn, Kent and Tukwila, Everett, Mukilteo and Edmonds, bringing event participants to King Street Station in Seattle, just a short walk to Qwest Field. Regular weekday Sounder fares apply for the special trains.

Inbound trains will depart Everett Station at 6:25 a.m. and Tacoma Dome Station at 6:30 a.m., with both the northline and southline trains arriving at King Street Station shortly before 7:30 a.m. Return trip trains will depart King Street Station at 11:55 a.m. at the conclusion of the event. Complete timetables and fare information for the Ride for the Cure trains are here>>>. Timetables for Ride for the Cure trains are also listed below.  

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Today, the Komen Foundation, with its dedicated network of volunteers and over 100 Komen Race for the Cure events nationwide, is the world’s leading catalyst in the fight against this devastating disease. Sound Transit is a sponsor of the 2009 Puget Sound Race for the Cure event. 

Along with Ride for the Cure Sounder trains, regularly scheduled ST Express buses can also connect event participants to downtown Seattle. For more information about all Sound Transit service, visit or schedules pages>>>
