Thousands of people from Palo Alto and beyond ventured out to the Baylands Friday night, Sept. 28, for the 28th annual Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run & Walk.
Walkers and runners -- both competitive and casual -- converged on the Baylands Athletic Center off Embarcadero Road for the festivities. The event featured a 5K walk, a 5K run and a 10K run, as well as two DJs, vendor booths, a climbing wall for kids and pre-race warm-ups. In 2011, a surprise storm sent sheets of rain down on runners while lighting flashed overhead. This year though, the skies were clear.
The proceeds from the event benefit the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund for local charitable organizations.
