The 30th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run & Walk takes place tonight under the full Harvest Moon in the Palo Alto Baylands.
The 5k walk begins at 7 p.m., followed by a 10k run at 8:15 and a 5k run at 8:45. The courses begin at the Baylands Athletic Center at the end of Geng Road and follow the levees in the Baylands.
Music, a kids' climbing wall, sponsor booths and a fun run for young children make for a festive atmosphere on the infield of the baseball park at the Athletic Center.
Participants are encouraged to carpool or ride bikes and to arrive early due to traffic and parking congestion. Police will direct cars to parking lots in the area.
The race raises money for the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund, which gives grants each year to local nonprofits with programs serving children and families.
