April 6, 2014 - The 2014 Tulip Trot was a great success; more than 500 runners participated in this 3rd annual event, which was hosted by Holland America Bulb Farms, Woodland WA. The weather was pleasant, it was dry, the participants were quite happy. The 5K route was nicely planned by Michael Mentler. It started on the bulb farm's parking lot then it went around beautiful tulip fields back to the parking lot. We had an incredible first place winner, Eric Dolezal, he ran the 5K in 16:25, second was Samuel Garvin, and the 3rd place went to Jeffrey Alberghini. Many participants said that they beat their personal record; others enjoyed the route walking it from start to finish. Many volunteers helped to make this event a wonderful experience for everyone who participated. From the proceeds an amount of more than $1,000.00 will be donated to the Woodland Action Center (local area Food Bank) by Holland America Bulb Farms. This event has grown every year since 2012; the expected number for the 2015 Tulip Trot is estimated to be at least 600 runners - Click here for more pictures.
