The annual fundraising event supports the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund, which awards grants to nonprofits that serve children and families in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. Last year's virtual event, which included 677 runners and walkers from 13 states and six countries, raised more than $50,000 through race registrations and sponsor donations. During the last in-person event at the Baylands in 2019, more than 2,000 runners and walkers participated, and the fund collected $458,525.
Registration for all events begins at 5:30 p.m. on Friday's race night at Baylands Athletic Center, 1900 Geng Road, Palo Alto.
Results of the in-person races will be posted as available on race night at paloaltoonline.com. To maintain fairness to in-person runners, virtual participants will not be eligible for awards and will not be able to submit times.
