Saturday, August 16, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for the Second Annual Puente 5k/10k Fun Run/Walk!
Puente Community Resource Center in Pescadero is proud to host its second 5k Run/Walk and for the first time a 10k!
It costs just $15 ($12 if you sign up before August 1 )to join and a portion benefits Puente and its mission to, among other things, promote health and wellness throughout the South Coast.
Take in a beautiful walk or run through eucalyptus trees and alongside farms while supporting the essential services for local men, women, kids and families- our friends and neighbors who need it most.
Enjoy local food at the finish line and then you will still have plenty of time to check out the Pescadero Arts and Fun Festival!
Notes about the route:
Both the 5k and 10k routes begin at Puente's main office (620 North St) at 8am. Participants will follow North St to Stage Rd, turn right, complete half their distance, and turn around to return to the finish line.
There will be a water station at the 5k turn around and a first aid station at the start/finish line.
Both runners and walkers are welcome on the 5k. Only runners for 10k please.
All participants will sign a waiver on event day.
We're excited to be running during the Pescadero Arts and Fun Festival! http://www.pescaderoartsandfunfestival.org/
