Local Event: August 21st 5K/10K run for Palo Alto Community Child Care

Original post made by Philip H on Aug 2, 2010

The Baylands Summer Run is a 5K/10K in the Palo Alto Baylands on August 21st that benefits Palo Alto Community Child Care! Organized by two Paly 09' grads who have a history with PACCC, this run will be a fun community event.

We're hoping to attract around 500 runners of all levels. Additionally, there will be post race goodie bags and t-shirts handed out to all sign-ups.

The race itself weaves through the marshland on the outskirts of Palo Alto and is perfect for all levels of runners and walkers.

This event should be a good precursor to the Moonlight Run and Walk. Glad to see some youth doing something productive with their summer.

What a wonderful event to organize at the end of the summer vacation. Hopefully there will be a good turn-out to support the community. It should be beautiful weather and refreshing to walk or run through the ever changing Baylands.
