The 27th annual Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run and Walk drew thousands of people to the Baylands Friday evening -- and the high-energy crowd experienced a surprise thunderstorm that included flashes of lightning and bursts of rain.
The event involved many local runners and walkers, but some participants came from farther afield to take part in the yearly race, held in the evening under the harvest moon. As runners in the 10K race began to trickle in around 9 p.m., a light rain fell that was followed by thunder, lightning, wind and heavier rain. The storm let up around 10 p.m.
Full results from the race are available online.
