The Snohomish County Sports Commission works to enhance Snohomish County’s economy, image as a premier sports destination and way of life for its residents by attracting regional, national, and international sporting events to the county. Active at Altitude, the organizer of the US Trail Running Conference, will hold the 10th edition of the event in the city of Mukilteo from October 19–22, 2022. The commission also recently hired JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group’s Tourism and Destination Advisory Team to help in the RFI development and potentially in the RFP process to identify possible public and/or private developers or partners in the development and funding of a sports complex in Snohomish County with a focus on hosting a variety of sporting events and other recreational activities as well as additional related local events.
