VIDEO: Moonlight Run draws record crowd


More than 3,000 people were on hand for the 24th annual Moonlight Run & Walk Friday night.

It was a record-breaking number of sign-ups for the evening event, with participants coming from as far as Florida to run under the moonlight.

It was such a fun event ! This is the first time we participated ... by the end of the event, as a family we decided we were going to participate for years to come ...

Very well organized.

We had to be at Geng Rd early Saturday for baseball, and I was really impressed how efficiently the clean up had been done. Very well done.

This is a fun and well organized event. For someone who runs early in the morning this night event is a nice deviation from the norm. I plan to participate in the 10k run for the third year in a row in October.

Is this Palo Alto's version of the Bay-to-breakers party? I'm game.
