Some 1,300 runners and walkers turned out at Safeco Field over the weekend for the Third Annual Refuse to Abuse 5K. The event raised $107,000 to benefit the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

This unique event is the only 5K that uses Safeco Field as its course. Participants wound their way around every level of the ballpark with a final lap around the warning track on the field.

The 5K builds on the 18-year partnership between the Mariners and the Coalition that resulted in the groundbreaking Refuse To Abuse® violence prevention campaign which helps raise awareness and gives community members a way to get involved in preventing domestic violence.
