29th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run & Walk

Original post made on Sep 13, 2013

Songs and books have been written and movies made about the harvest mooon. Neil Young suggested going dancin' in its light. But for the locally and athletically inclined, the harvest moon means just one thing: running in the Baylands as part of the Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run & Walk.

I note 3 interesting parts of the article:

>Uploaded: Friday, September 13, 2013, 12:32 PM
>Updated: Monday, September 16, 2013, 8:45 AM

>Adult (13+) registration fee is $30 per entrant by Sept. 13. ...
>Youth (6-12) registration is $20 per entrant by Sept. 13. ...

>Late registration fee is $35 for adults, $25 for youth from Sept. 14-18.

Is this just lack of organization? or are we really trying to boost late registrations by publishing the article in the online version after the deadline has passed?

Just askin'

There were banner ads here last month when I signed up for the Moonlight Run. Novel experience, the baylands trails under moonlight. Illegal to be out there at night any other time, I believe. Eventbright says 303 tickets remaining (age 13+), and plenty for younger. Don't know how many they start with. 2012 results show about 1750 finishers, half 10K and half 5K. Note to Gennady -- that's a respectable pace you run.

Thanks to everyone involved for a fun and very smoothly-run event.
