Moonlight Run & Walk tonight

Baylands event will draw over 2,000

The 31st Annual Palo Alto Weekly Moonlight Run & Walk takes place tonight under the full Harvest Moon in the Palo Alto Baylands.

Sponsored by the Weekly and the City of Palo Alto, the event is the largest running event held on the Peninsula and draws more than 2,000 participants. Corporate sponsors are the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Pacific Union Real Estate, Palantir, Whole Foods, Stanford Federal Credit Union and the Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati Foundation.

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.

Live music by School of Rock, a kids' climbing wall, sponsor and food booths 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.
