The 5k and 10k Course – This flat course will begin at Bayer Neighborhood Park and Garden, and head North and onto historic Sebastopol Rd. Runners will head towards Roseland Creek Elementary school using a bit of dirt trail at the site of a future Santa Rosa park. After a long straight section on Burbank Ave, runners will turn East on Hearn ave using another dirt trail then onto Dutton Ave. Having just about circled Roseland runners race back to Bayer Neighborhood Park and Gardens for finish line festivities. The 10K will complete the loop twice! https://www.strava.com/routes/12045947
Carrera de Ninõs – This year we have added a kid’s run to the event. Ages 10 and under are invited to sign up for free and run 2 loops around Bayer Neighborhood Park. Accomplishment ribbons for all. The Carrera de Ninõs will take place before the 5k/10k start. Kids who start running young are more likely to use running as a tool for physical and mental health as they develop.
Post-Race Health & Wellness Festival – All are invited to join in the post race Health & Wellness Festival featuring age-division awards, a celebration of Latino culture, and healthy snacks. Sponsor booths will feature advice on maintaining fun active lifestyles, nutrition, yoga and stretching and more.
We Appreciate Volunteers – Don’t want to run, but still want to be part of the fun? There will be several volunteer opportunities before, during and after the event including goodie bag stuffing, bib-pickup assistance, race route guides, award distribution and more. All volunteers receive a commemorative shirt.
