Pull out those running shoes and hop on the Internet -- it's time to register for the 30th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run & Walk.
The Sept. 5 race starts at the Baylands Athletic Center, 1900 Geng Road (at Embarcadero Road), Palo Alto. The 5k walk starts at 7 p.m.; the 10k run at 8:15 p.m.; and the 5k run at 8:45 p.m.
Preregistration of $30 for youth and $40 for adults can be made via PaloAltoOnline.com/moonlight_run until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Runners and walkers can also register on race night ($35 for youth; $45 for adults). A free, long-sleeve shirt comes with registration.
In addition to the races, there will be music, booths, a kids' climbing wall and a festive atmosphere.
Dogs are permitted on the 5k walk but not on either run, where the terrain and darkness make it dangerous. Jogging strollers are welcome in the 5k walk or at the back of either run.
Despite the near-full harvest moon, headlamps are highly recommended for both runs.
On the night of the event, police officers and volunteers will direct drivers to parking lots off Embarcadero Road and East Bayshore Road. Participants should plan on carpooling if possible, as lots will fill up. It is recommended that people arrive at least an hour before the start time of their walk or run.
