Cancelled - Robothon 2020

Unfortunately Robothon 2020 is canceled. We are going to set up some community zoom meeting so builders can chat, share build reports, or generally complain about the event being canceled. Look for details here soon.


Event Listing Robothon is a great Seattle tradition with all kinds of robots to keep you entertained!

The event is held at the Armory building in the Seattle Center and is FREE to attend and compete.

Western Allied Robotics will be bringing it's 12'x16' arena to contain the 1 to 30 pounds robots battleing it out to see who will come out on top!

If fighting robots aren't your cup of tea, there will also be Line Following, Walking Races, Pop Can Challenge, Robo-Magellan and Mini Sumo.

Event Format

Western Allied Robotics events use a modified double-elimination format. The final is decided  with a single final match. If there are 5 or fewer bots in a weight class they will use a round-robin format. Please read the Rules to make sure your bot qualifies to compete.  Plastic Class and Sportsman class rules can be found on the website.


We are going to cap registration at 3-bots per driver.  If you want to bring more than 3 bots please put your additional bot on the robot-class wait-list.  We are doing this to try and accommodate as many builders/teams as we can.  If registration doesn't hit capacity then bots will be moved off of the wait list.  

Wait Lists

We typically have some churn before the event so put your bot on the wait-list.  Wait-lists will be first-come-first-serve.  Based on past events there is a good chance that the first few bots on the wait-lists for each class will get to compete.

Pit Tables

Pit table space may be limited so plan accordingly.
